Re: Slimjet versions 30.0.1.0 and 30.0.2.0 high cpu usage

Haven't had any problems just reinstalling it without deleting anything.
And again after checking out 30.0.4.0

Always backing up profiles on general principles, but did not need to do any emergency recovery with them.

I'll post any problems if they arise.

Re: Slimjet versions 30.0.1.0 and 30.0.2.0 high cpu usage

There are two things going on here, that get especially messy together.

One is that the last version of Slimjet broke a lot of stuff that worked just fine before.
The other is YouTube not playing nice, but in a way I previously compensated for with AdBlock and NoScript and a few extensions.

Re: Slimjet gets (abysmally) sluggish the longer it stays open.

My advice is to back up to version 29.0.3.0 and stay there until the Slimjet folks explicitly address the problem. That version works just fine and has all the virtues that got me to switch to Slimjet in the first place. I have already reported in some technical detail what is going wrong and still ...

Re: Reverted to 29.0.3.0

Better, but still too flaky when it comes to clearing cookies when closing a window. Also numerous little annoyances that may be related to excessive memory usage. Sent a more detailed report using the official reporting system. Sticking with 29.0.3.0 for now, but hopeful going forward. The really n...

Re: Reverted to 29.0.3.0

30.0.4.0 Released.

I'll give it a shot over the weekend, but I still have my 29.0.3.0 installer on hand just in case.

Re: Ad Block Tester try it and post your result here

Green all the way on Slimjet (but not using the native ad blocker). :mrgreen:

Likewise with Brave (using their native blocker).

Re: Browser inventory. General discussion

Reverted to version 29, but Slimjet is still my primary.
Version 30 breaks a lot of stuff that used to work. I diagnose not enough regression testing.

Version 29 works well for me, including my customization.
Waiting for the next major revision before I would consider switching.
