What browser and version? I would imagine WebGL support has advanced somewhat since my old FF 78 ESR. 🙃 Computer is 6 year old i5 6500 w GTX970.

I just tried it in Chromium 90, works OK with 30,000 fish almost smoothly.

 

My pc is six years old too,

Just a tad beefier than your rig though.

 

Used FF on my Arch os.

 

firefox 94.0.2-2

Ah, yes, somewhat beefier than mine. And latest Firefox may help. Link doesn't mention graphics, are you using onboard Intel graphics?

The Firefox crashing issue folks have been experiencing is supposedly fixed in the newest version now available... 94.0.2.

Nope never tried out the onboard graphics. I bought a development version of the Zotac GTX 1070 substantially cheaper than a retail one when I first built the rig. So far it has done me proud and it should handle VR stuff at a not too high level too if I ever go that route.

 

ZOTAC GeForce® GTX 1070

I re read the thread I posted on the build and came across this,

However lets say the whole build cost £1,000 if you factor in the psu I bought ages ago with a view to this upgrade and the ssd's I have. Then if the pc lasts ten years that works out at £2 a week. Realistically I should get five years of decent use out of it which works out to £4 a week that is only the price of a couple of beers a week. For a two and a half year life span it works out at £8 a week. Hardly enough to get fish chips and peas and a pint.

 

The original Corsair AX 850 psu died a few months ago (it had been running  24/7 for five years or so) and was replaced with a Corsair HX 850. An I bought a replacement  1 TB nvme which cost less than the original 256 MB one. So my total cost has gone up even so I recon that since I built the rig it has cost me less than £4 a week and dropping with every week that passes. Making my pc building and computing hobby a pretty cheap deal all round. 😋
