Same here, though a lot depends on what else you're using the
system for, and whether you've been running another program
that needs lot of memory.

The single thing that's made most difference for me is the link in
https://lists.debian.org/debian-user/2017/10/msg00386.html
(to which the operaphiles have not responded).
It probably makes no difference to rendering a page like itself,
but it cuts a lot of the downloading of stupid bits of code that
bring the elderly processor to its knees.

Cheers,
David.
