Flash Player is a monstrous disaster, likewise Safari.
Some Development Tools for programming take a huge amount of computer performance but just do nothing, except waiting for some keyboard input. And I recall on a programming development tool which was completely useless under 2000/XP running on portable computers. Alternative we used UltraEdit.
Probably a lot of folks throw away their older computers because of weak performance on internet surfing.
Most of times the reason for weak performance is Flash Player.
Flash Player eats a lot of performance even on pics.
Very often there are many Flash pics at one website, therefore beating a lot of performance.
I myself have got Flash deactivate by default (Opera settings), and therefore tons of advertisement deactivate, and therefore brilliant computer performance even on old fashioned machines.
There are other possibilities as well to improve performance on older machines.
A very lot of Software Applications looks for Updates all along the line, Each of these Auto Updates takes a bit of performance. Some of these Auto Update Applications beat more performance then others, so probably the explicit programming is very different.
Opera runs very quick whereas Firefox is a lame dug.
Improved performance of a computer is not always a matter of CPU performance.
Very often it is a matter of suboptimal programming of applications running on your machine.
Throw away the things you don't really need helps to improve the performance.
But if you don't do nothing to settings you'll probably need a new machine year after year.
