Hey ironman, I do have Windows 2000 plus UURollup! The Windows 98 machine I'm using is actually different from my main computer. My main computer runs Windows 2000. The Windows 98 machine is in my bedroom. I custom built both myself actually. Windows 98 has a AMD Athlon 64 X2 3800+ processor in it and I have 1 gig of RAM. I have a fast cable internet connection as well but it doesn't seem like page load it all that slow, it almost feels like the browser itself slows it down. It feels shaky if you know what I mean. I do have the KernelEx installed plus the latest USP 3 as well. It might even be the actual machine since I only have one IDE channel on it and both are in use by the CD drive and hard drive. I thought about trying the SATA drive and sticking it in compatibility mode but dencorso advised me not to do so, but I might just try anyway since it's just a matter of switching drives. I mean it can't hurt anything to try anyway. As of right now, I'm using the latest Pale Moon browser on Windows 2000 and I like it. It seems a bit snappier than FireFox does.
@Flasche: I'm not sure why Opera is slow for me but as I said, it feels like the browser itself is slow, not anything to do with page load. But as I was describing to dencorso a few days ago via private message, it seems that loading affects Flash. If I load a movie on YouTube and pause it until it fully loads, it works just fine. But if I play it while it downloads the rest in the background, it's choppy and laggy. So I'm wondering if there's something else going on that makes it feel like a stick in the mud. As I said, I might just try installing it on my SATA drive and run it in compatibility mode, just to see what happens. It can't hurt anything to try.
