This is interesting, and kind of makes me want to have another look at firefox again for a browser. There was a time when the first thing you did to a new computer was to install firefox.
I took my 1691 tab browser profile, and did a wall-clock measurement of start-up time and memory use for Firefox versions 20, 30, 40, and 50 through 56.These are my personal results. You might not get the same results. If you test 1691 (or even 1692) tabs and find something totally different, I’d love to hear about it.

The problem I have found with having a server for your wordpress site is you lose an eMail server. I’ve tried using Go Daddy for email hosting but I never liked it.
Then I stumbled across fastmail and it suits me just fine. It costs me a few bucks a month but they offer both a web-based and apps for your phone too.
It’s seemingly working just fine and I don’t have to think about email any more

Less is indeed one minimal theme. No image sizes, and I think there’s about 2 files in the entire theme. I’ve used it in the past but I like burger factory for this site a bit better.
Another app bites the dust if you have an older Mac and OS. From Ric Ford on Macintouch:

The Power Mac G5 was one of the last PowerPC machines Apple produced and sold. It remains a capable computer today. This website is dedicated to the venerable machine, providing users with information on available hardware and software choices for their G5.

But bit boring… We decided to pack some cool features into a child theme (Magazine Builder™), so you can add great magazine “stuff” to your WordPress blogging site now …
This looks to be a very nice theme that’s free and would be good to use for both a personal site or magazine. I like the look better than the twenty-seventeen
