Firefox: a (not so) quick evaluation — 10 Comments

  1. I very much appreciated your writings and sharing your thoughts to everyone. I expect more articles to read for the next time.

  2. I switched to Firefox because IE kept locking up on me. I’m very happy about it. I do occasionally have problems with it. But usually it’s because I have too many tabs open.

    I’ve loaded a few add-ons, too. Fast Dial and Tree Style Tabs are my favorite. I like being able to put the tabs on the side as I have a letterbox shaped screen. Some you mentioned are new to me but after your recommendation, I think I’ll try a couple. The menu editor sounds interesting as do the search status and quick drag.

    Thanks for the review.

  3. Totally love Firefox. For your tab settings, just go to tools – options – tabs. and with the recent version, it’s got a + button to open a new tab, instead of CONTROL T. I’m not very computer savvy, but I find it straightforward. Also, the EntreCard toolbar add-on is excellent.

  4. I love Firefox. I have been using it since it was before 1.0! I read about it in Maximum PC some years ago. It is one of the best, if not the best browsers. My only gripe with it is the memory leaks…but it’s usually because I have like 5-10 tabs open.

    I hope you love Firefox as much as I do! I helped set the world record for most number of downloads of software in a single day with Firefox. It was awesome.

  5. Hi Jeff,

    Try having 110 tabs open!

    Even with “load images automatically” turned off, the noscript pluging to disable java & javascript, and flashblock to disable all flash… Firefox still “consumes” 600Mb (0.6 Gb)… and for a few minutes, it consumes 100% CPU on one of my CPU cores (FF doesn’t have multi-threaded tabs)… CPU is an Intel dual core E6300 running at 3.5 Ghz

    Luckily I only need all those tabs once per day… after that I restart firefox to reclaim my RAM.

  6. Great review on Firefox. For those out there who haven’t yet had the chance to implement FireFox I would suggest to go for it, and I’m sure after reading your post I think most people will do just that. I also like the fact that I can have 20 different tabs open at one time. thanks for the extra info. I will look into the plugins that you mentioned, they sound like they would be useful to me. jj

  8. I always prefer to use Mozilla Firefox because it provides huge range of plug-ins to Improve our browsing experience, more flexibility and reliability.
