Midori browser in Trisquel Mini GNU/Linux

Hello guys!!
I hope you can give me a hand here!!
I have installed Trisquel Mini 4.0.1 Taranis into an old computer: AMD Atholon Processor, 899 Mhz 192MB RAM, 20 GB HD.
It seemed to work better than than the previous WinXp. At least I'm able to do more than one thing at a time!
However, I do have problems with Midori Browser. It goes TOO slow and doesn't seem to cope with the system... Everything else work more or less fine, some things faster than others, but they work. But Midori take ages to load webpages and to close them... I cannot fully load gmail either...
So, what can I do? Should I use other web browser? Which one? Do I need to configure something else? I'd like to be able to watch youtube videos and load gmail completely...
Thanks in advance!!

Midori is still somewhat early in it's development and while it passes all the Acid tests because of it's back-end WebKit, I feel it is not yet ready for everyday use. My suggestion is to use Google Chrome as it is the fastest and has the smallest footprint of the major browsers. Personally, I like Firefox better but for you I'd suggest Chrome.

Hi soppy!

I'm sorry I didn't reply earlier. Chrome actually works pretty faster and I'm able to run gmail and even chat there! Thank you very much for your help!
