System requirements

Minimum system requirements

The installer has no restrictions on running on weak systems. However, insufficient memory or storage space, a slow hard drive or network connection may affect the usability of Octo Browser.

Recommended system settings:

  • 4GB RAM and above
  • GPU
  • SSD drive

The more RAM is available, the more tabs and profiles you will be able to comfortably work with. For example, in x86 (32-bit) systems up to 4 GB is used for memory addressing, which by modern standards is not sufficient for simultaneous use of several profiles, and thus negatively affects performance.

Page rendering will be noticeably faster with a more modern GPU. When you run Octo Browser from an SSD drive, you will get a noticeable increase in speed and usability.

The browser requires a stable Internet connection. The broader the download channel, the faster you can get profiles from servers. The broader the upload channel, the less time it will take to upload the profile after working with it.

Currently, Octo Browser can be used on modern x64 (64-bit) systems. Octo Browser is not supported on x32 (32-bit) systems.
