Comment: Opera Developer (Score 0) 181

Firefox is dog slow in Ubuntu box (Core I5!) always taking 20%-30% cpu.
Chrome, not much better. Just tried Opera Developer (chromium based I believe) and the difference is abysmal. 0% cpu at idle, fast as lightning, I installed lots of plugins into Opera and it still it consumes no CPU. Why Firefox or chrome can't be like this?

Fair enough, just two questions:
1) An electron hitting an atom will produce photons with the same energy via the Bremsstrahlung effect. As electrons will hit atoms sometimes, 300 MeV electrons means you will have 300 MeV photons, right?
2) How much energy a photon needs to transmute an atom? I believe it's lower than 300 MeV (but as a commenter said, it's 300 MeV *per meter* so really you need a lot of those devices chained together for them to become dangerous, I guess)

What the world *really* needs is a good Automatic Bicycle Sharpener.

Working...
