Linux Mint is funded by ads and donations.

I have a old laptop that it has a single core cpu. I use it mainly sitting on the couch to read stuff. So tinkered with this a bit.

In chrome, they use their own flash called pepperflash. Sometimes if you disable it and use the firefox flash from adobe, it runs better. Chromium, does not have pepperflash, by default it uses the same flash as firefox.

You can see what's running by typing chrome://plugins/ in the address bar of chrome.
