The thread is being turned away from the subject, I think. dantheman said it, Maxthon has no extraordinary high CPU usage, it is nothing but bull**** from Firefox users who all are in the habbit of lyi twisting the facts as all Firefox users do. Mozilla ran a zillion dollar campaign spreading the (false) rumor that Firefox was safer, faster and all sorts of possitive words, than IE - allthough it never was or is. Because of this basic ly wrong propaganda, Firefox users have all been acustomed to twisting the facts. And so they do, also on this subject. But what about it, Darwin, why does your Maxthon 2 have a problem? I (too) would guess it is because of one of the addons, so I would think it apropriate to check them one by one. Hard weork maybe, but as you are implying, it may be a lot harder to set up a new browser with so many extras.

Program: minipad2 http://www.nebulasoft.cn/...inipad2/downloads_en.html
Forum: (6⅔ members!) http://www.nebulasoft.cn/...isplay.php?forum=minipad2


I found this little great program at the nebulasoft.cn site. At first it was very hard for me to understand the purpose of the program, and I still think it is difficult to explain. The Chineese author present his program this way:

Quote
minipad2 is a tiny, multi-page style windows program which integrates all the useful functions including text editor, calculator, reminder, dictionary, text template & clipboard-enhancement . All the contents saved in a single text file. It automatically restores the last state when re-opened. It can be set as start with windows and minimize to the system tray with very few memory take-up.

minipad2 is a single-exe green software. It can be directly used when unzipped to a random directory without installation. It adds no key to the system registry, except for the "Run" key when set as start with windows.

minipad2 is a freeware, this means you can freely use, copy, send or distribute this program, but should promise to keep the completion of the program including the installation package, you should not modify it or bind any plugins without permission of the author.

The author provides free technical support for this program by Email and Forum,

There is another small site giving away programs; only, they give away freeware programs! :-) The site is named "free download a day", http://www.freedownloadaday.com/ , and they have the funniest newsmail you can think of: They will mail you once a week, okay, but not to tell you what WILL BE, oh no, but to tell what HAS BEEN! The only way to know what any "today"'s offer is, is to go visit their page, there is no newsmail telling about it.

I too tried to open a fav' folder of 21 links. Firefox was using between 30 and 60 % CPU with a constant total CPU usage of 100%, while Maxthon 1.6 was using between 10 and 50 % with a total of 80 - 90 %. Both had some peaks around 90%.

With all 21 pages open, Firefox was taking up 252 MB Virtual Size, 94 MB Working Set, and 115 MB Private Bytes. In the same discipline Maxthon 1.6 was taking up 280 MB Virtual Size, 25 MB Working Set, and 78 MB Private Bytes. So they are using the memory differently.

A strange part was when I closed 21 pages at the same time while watching Process Explorer: Maxthon 1.6 would still use 240 MB Virtual Size, 10 MB Working Set, and 56 MB Private Bytes - meaning the hard part on memory is the browser, not the homepages.


Sorry for the layout, I will not win an pedagogical prize for this post, I know.

Curt, spotted your 1500th post!

Thanks, lanux128. I was a little sad that I forgot it myself.  thumbs up
4809  Main Area and Open Discussion / General Software Discussion / Re: Maxthon (web browser) resource utilization... on: February 17, 2008, 08:59:52 AM
With seven tabs / pages open my Maxthon 1.6 is using 367.188 K Virtual Size, 8.000 - 12.000 K Working Set, and 70.612 K Private Bytes.

It is a lot, but isn't it also quite normal? I don't see Firefox 2 using less.

Actually, DC's posts are indexed by google in about 1 hour

For sure they are not. Unless, of course, you meant they all will be indexed in about one hour from now? Well, maybe new posts are being indexed, but certainly not even one of the older posts I have been searching for.

But anyway, I will forget about the adverts.
4811  Special User Sections / DC Website Help and Extras / Will Google adverts make Google index DC? on: February 17, 2008, 07:53:51 AM
A friend remembered that I was talking about something he should read here at DC, but could not remeber the name, donationcoder. So when he did a thorough search at Google he was very confused that Google gave no links to the subject. That is, no links to DonationCoder. You already know about this, of course, and have mentioned it quite some times. But still, the situation is not acceptable, I think. There is so much gold to be found at DC, that accepting our forum never to come up in a Google search, is to accept gold to be thrown into the street, isn't it - or however I should say it.

Maybe, just maybe, 'we' could some kind of 'force' Google to index DC, if mouser would accept a Google advert on each page? I have noticed there is room for at least one advert inside the header, to the right of Cody, and was thinking it would be acceptable to see an advert there. But of course, I don't know what it takes to make Google index DC, I just think we need to do something!

Edited for Disclaimer:
My goal is not to have adverts, but to make Google index DC.

My bad; I should have quoted the very first sentence from the homepage:

Quote from: Finder's homepage
Finder is an index-based fast file search tool

- no content. Sorry.

What I like about DK Finder is that it will index and search as I tell it to for what-ever filetype placed where-ever. And this situaytion is where I would want a search engine in the first place. I never search for documents, because they are where they should be, aren't they; I placed them myself. I only search my PC when some program is naming this or that file. And for these situations WDS, Copernic, and most of the others are almost useless. Or maybe I just never figured out how to use them, but that too is due cause for disqualification.

4815  Main Area and Open Discussion / General Software Discussion / Re: What is the currently best Desktop Search software? on: February 16, 2008, 07:02:46 PM
@ yksyks, take an extra look at the last picture: YOU decide which files should be indexed, including PDF and e-mails. I have not yet tried DK Finder in its' details (I have and like my WDS 3.0), but it is very quick to test the program if you want to know the answers for sure - except that in my setup the program will finish launching surprisingly slow, after the GUI has become visible. I guess it is indexing at the same time.

I have no idea what NEAR operators are, but it accepts arguments, if that is what 'reg-ex' is.

I cannot share the excited feelings about MaxView, because neither the installed or the portable version would save settings on my XP. So MaxView too has left the building.

I am though very pleased with FastStone Capture 6.0 (just updated).

I used the previous version of Instant Storm to make a screensaver from Pink Floyd's Painted Ladies

I just realized that I was nowhere near to be the first telling about QT:

The following items were not listed here (I think) and as far as I know just a few people knows about them:

QT TabBar http://quizo.at.infoseek.....jp/freeware/indexEn.html -- tabs in Windows Explorer and much more

QT Address Bar -- the same page as above -- adds breadcrumbs to WinExp

Startup Delayer http://www.r2.com.au/soft...age=2&show=startdelay -- lets you specify the order and delay of apps running at startup--gives you unprecedented stability of the system, I was hunting for something like this for years

Hotkeyz http://www.skynergy.com/hotkeyz.html -- create hotkey for virtually anything, including text pasting and macros, again, invaluable for keyboard maniacs

Enjoy!

Thanks for telling, yksyks!  Thmbsup
- and.., ehh.., Sorry! for not noticing back then..  embarassed

I've set double clicking on the tab bar to open a new tab. But it doesn't do anything when I double click.

Your problem is confusing me because it will always do a lot of stuff if I double-click somewhere. My problem was to first understand what is was that had happened. Did you notice that it makes a difference if you db'click on a tab compared to if you db'click on a bar?

Edited: In my setup your action will clone the active tab.

I used a lot of space to tell you that a earlier version of Startup Delayer didn't work for me, so I really should tell that the present version, build 130, is working without any errors at all.

Maybe *someone* can and will translate this short essay, 'cause I can't:

Quote from: in Danish
Alle, Nogle, Enhver og Ingen.

Der var fire personer som hed Alle, Nogle, Enhver og Ingen.
Der var et vigtigt stykke arbejde, som skulle gøres, og Alle blev bedt om at gøre det.
Alle troede at Nogle nok skulle gøre det. Enhver kunne have gjort det, men Ingen gjorde det. Så brokkede Nogle sig over det, fordi det var Alles opgave. Alle mente at Enhver kunne gøre det, men Ingen indså at Alle ville lade være med at gøre det.
Det endte med at Alle skældte Nogle ud for, at Ingen gjorde hvad Enhver kunne have gjort.
