My friend just returned the [2008] 10" Acer I had loaned him many years
Time to resurrect from the dead and "play"!
Added an SSD and 2Gb of ram.
I had noticed one of the members promoted Elive, so loaded the 32 bit
It looks good, boots fast and programs load quickly.

I ran speed tests and downloads are ~7 to 10 Mbps
Sites that are data heavy eg: BBC, CBC are painfully slow to load.
Firefox and Opera have the same speed issue.
It has an Intel Atom processor. This may be the limitation?

Does anyone have a suggestion as to how to improve data heavy websites on
