I understand that the Web/Epiphany browser is in beta, but why does it cause Raspbian to stuggle just loading Google, or any other website (with only one tab open)?

Midori doesn't have this problem, and Web's features contradict this:

  • A good multi-tab experience

  • ARMv6-optimized 2d rendering

  • Accelerated image and HTML5 video decoding

I have enabled cgroups with:


How can I make Web run faster?

    Never mind, just re-read your post and saw that you were, in fact, talking about the beta. Jan 1, 2014 at 16:14

The raspberry pi struggles to run web browsers and the experience of web browsing is not very good. If the browser doesn't work well for you, you can always switch to better alternatives like netsurf,etc,etc. Makeuseof even wrote an article on it http://www.makeuseof.com/tag/how-to-choose-and-optimise-your-raspberry-pi-browser/ hope this helps you!

    Welcome to Raspberry Pi! Whilst this may theoretically answer the question, it would be preferable to include the essential parts of the answer here, and provide the link for reference. If you could post a synopsis of what is on that page, it would make your answer better and would help keep this site more informative and usable, even if link rot does occur. Thanks!

Raspberry Pi is not designed for we browsing, and therefore you will never get a very fast solution. I would suggest trying midori, the default browser. Your browser is probably to big.
