hello everyone.. I have a 2002 iMac, 800 mhz with updated ram to 768. Lately I have been noticing my computer suffering with web browsing. Something like switching tabs or loading a website would make the beachball come out. The other applications and computer use, is fine, they run at the speed they are supposed to run at(800 mhz g4)...but the web browsing on safari and firefox became very heavy. id o not understand this. While typing this message I just suffered from lag, as i finished the sentence and the browser(safari) still didnt get it. A couple seconds later it typed the whole thing out. Also the system just doesnt seem to be snappy as it used to be. i recall one person telling me that the OS X use extensive resources making the system lag on my old machine. I believe its a long argument why computers turn slower by time. but my machine seems unable to load animated gif(something we used to suffer in '98!) or the use flash will kill it. Its not like flash and animated gif didnt exist when I bought this machine. Any idea why such things happen. one site that is so heavy on my browser is gamespot.com . It will take a really long time to load.
