i cant understand how OS can contribute to webpage viewing. because OS.
because as far as i know internet is a "distributed system". the single
machine OS has to have access with the servers. and web pages get
compiled/interpreted at the server end. the machine code then transmits.
from these codes web page gets rebuilt at the client end. and the
reconstruction takes place in the browser, so the problem(if there any)
lies in the browser. although i never experienced any problem with my
firefox. and i was a MS user. and i had reversed experience. my browser
locked up occasionally when i used MS. but i never had problem in my
GNU/linux distributions.
