I am using Chromium on a flash drive through LiberKey and it does everything I want it to do as far as syncing my Chrome bookmarks from home, etc. But it's soooooo slow. If I open more than 1 tab, or if a tab is heavy with code such as Gmail or GMaps, then the entire program hangs for about 5-10 seconds.
I don't exactly know how portable apps work when run from a flash drive, so is there a way to speed up load times?
The computer I'm using here at work has a P4 3GHz CPU and 2GB of RAM. The flash drive is a SanDisk 2GB (probably 2-3 years old).
UPDATE: I downloaded and ran USBDeview after reading some about USB speeds. The drive transfers around 5 MB/s write and about 15 MB/s read. Would that be sufficient for my portable app speeds?
