Just like Memory usage CPU time was also improved with FireFox 3 . The new browser use about half CPU power than previous one .The new fire fox beta version (5) improves the CPU usage by almost 20 % in comparison with FireFox 3 beta 3 .This is already a nice progress .The above speak about browser optimization . For example, fire fox 2 was clearly built for a simple HTML page while Fire fox 3 shows better performance with a complex page (average 20) .

I have been using FF2.0. However I have been plagued with bugs, crashes, and high memory use. I tired FF3.0 beta 4, and it was worse than FF2.0. I went to Opera 9, and it was faster (so it seeme), but I really could not get used to the interface. Perhaps I will give this beta 5 a try. The only reason I like FF is the spell checker and UI anyways.

Odd how barely anyone else has these problems


But yea, I love opera but the interface isn't for me.

The latest FF3 nightly renders Acid3 quite fast. They've stopped trying to improve their score, and worked on getting everything to work quickly.

FF3 definitely has it's problems. I don't think the developers know what to work on any more, in some respects. All bugs relating to printing have not been fixed, which sucks.

I use Opera as my secondary browser. I used it just a few minutes ago to check my mail, and I was surprised to find that there is no ability to right-click a link and choose something such as "copy link location."

Something must be wrong lol , when you right click theres most definitely a "copy link address" ability. Maybe you are double clicking the left mouse button, because that pulls out a menu as well as the right click button
