Re: USB Hub - "freezing pi"

You really need to be using a powered hub.
I find using two USB ports (usually mouse and USB keydrive) is the limit.
So in effect going above 3 USB ports (by adding an unpowered hub) is not possible. For me the error was keyboard auto repeat. :oops:

Re: Web browser too slow?

Chromium browser is faster and more reliable than Midori at the present time (on the Debian build)
On the Arch side Netsurf is faster still. Text browsers are not really feasible for most users . . . :)
