firefox 3 doesn’t do multi core CPUs — 3 Comments

  1. I love firefox AND chrome—when chrome is in final release i think it might just be the Firefox killer though—its so freaking fast at everything and so innovative…im surprised that FF isnt multithreading though, have you tried changing the affinity on it to cover both cores?

  2. Like I said, I was surprised.
    Affinity was the first thing I checked. It covers both cores.

    Maybe FF4 will (hopefully) involve a complete redesign to allow for the same multi-threaded capabilities as Chrome.

  3. Good analysis here. So is FF not multithreaded??? But, when it comes to the speed IE7 is dead slower in my PC. Whereas, FF is good!
