I suppose it's relative.  I compile it on a dual-core
while doing other stuff & everything goes fine, it
just seems to take a rather long time (comparable
to [libre|open]office).

I'll give it that chromium (8 tabs open) seems to
use far less CPU than opera (6 tabs open) & less
than 1/4 the memory of opera, as well.
