[FB] Preliminary Internet Explorer 11 and Internet Explorer 12 Release Dates - Page 2

post #11 of 22
I won't use IE, unless there're already formidable extensions; though, I admit it is sleek and fast.

I used to use Firefox Aurora (not quite Nightly, but getting there in terms of speed etc, but more stable), after trying regular, Beta and Nightly, and decided that it was the best balance of speed and reliability. However, the constant updating was a little irritating and the lack of plugin compatibility without forcing compatibility was also a little annoying (some plugins just didn't want to be forced into working).


... So, I went back to regular Firefox, noticed how much slower it was and started experimenting. I tried the latest IE version (didn't like it), and then tried Opera.


Opera feels really nice to use; I never quite got on with Chrome (have tried it before), but Opera feels really customizable, fast and has lots of features (such as Opera Turbo/Unite) which are occasionally useful. It also feels "better" for the software community than IE (closed source with little input from the outside) and Chrome (which is made by Google to increase profit margins).


Don't get me wrong, I'm not anti-Google or anti-Microsoft per-se, I just prefer the idea of an Open-source web browser with constant updates and lots of features. Both Firefox and Opera fulfil those needs for me and consequently, I just can't stomach ANY IE release because of the lack of those.

Chrome is actually based off of the open source "Chromium" browser.

Not if ie defaults to Bing like it does.

So the upcoming Firefox versions should be faster? I still haven't had any issues with it's speed, but I haven't done real side by side impressions.

They get faster with each release. I'm on the 12 alpha(nightly) and can even tell a difference in it and say v8 or 9. It is so small that you really shouldn't worry about it, just a little more "snappy" I guess. Speed is overrated when picking a browser imo. The differences in all the major ones is so small it should be an afterthought. Customization/add-on's, UI, features and security/stability should be what people look at when deciding on a browser these days. Speed, eh, too close to matter.

RAM usage is another overrated one, at least to me. I used to be such a stickler on memory usage, to the point where I was OCD like about shutting down unused processes/services and constantly watching task manager to see which programs used too much, etc. Now, I don't even pay attention to memory usage for the most part. There is a bug in the latest nightly though, not sure how long it has been back. I am getting huge memory increases as time goes by, if I don't shut down and reopen the browser. It is sitting at over 1.2GB after about 2 hours of browsing. Only two tabs open. Looks like they brought back the memory leak with v12. Probably be patched back up within a few days though. I did change my cache to go to RAM only instead of using the HDD, so that may be causing it. Didn't think about that, will have to test it out.
