Should I reset my mid 2010 Mac mini to snow leopard? ?

It is at the latest operating system it can be at and it is slow and the videos are slow, so I am thinking about resetting it to snow leopard. 

Do you think I should do that?

    Try adding more RAM, it'll reduce the system's dependence on virtual memory (swapping data to and from the hard drive to pretend it has enough memory). If you have 4GB or less bump it up to 8GB (a pair of 4GB sticks).

    No. Snow Leopard no longer receives security updates, and no current browsers run on it.
