Best Browser

post #1 of 30
Thread Starter 
Which browser uses least CPU? Mozilla has used up to 50% of my cpu and makes it run hot for some reason....

So is there something wrong with my comp or is that what all browsers do?

Chrome is very lightweight and snappy for me.
I use Chrome Beta version 4.0.222.12 ( It dominates other browsers in the futuremark peacekeeper benchmark ).

Had been using Firefox for the longest time until i tried Chrome and loving every second of it. Chrome is slightly faster then Firefox from my experience

Firefox is crazy intensive, it uses a LOT of RAM, and as you open more and more tabs starts stressing your CPU, etc. I find it to be the best browser, but it is pretty intensive.

I find Arora to be the best in terms of lightweight, and functional, more info here.

Arora Information (Click to show)
Arora is a lightweight cross-platform web browser. It's free (as in free speech and free beer). Arora runs on Linux, embedded Linux, FreeBSD, Mac OS X, Windows and any other platforms supported by the Qt toolkit. Arora uses the QtWebKit port of the fully standards-compliant WebKit layout engine. It features fast rendering, powerful JavaScript engine and supports Netscape plugins.
Apart from the must-have features such as bookmarks, history and tabbed browsing Arora boasts:
  • very fast startup
  • integration with desktop environments
  • smart location bar
  • session management
  • privacy mode
  • flexible search engine management
  • ClickToFlash plugin
  • download manager
  • WebInspector, a set of tools for web developers
  • 30 translations
Arora began as a demo by Benjamin Meyer to help test the QtWebKit component, but since then it has grown into its own project outside of Qt.
Arora has a small, simple code base that is fun to hack on. Join the party in #arora on irc.freenode.org!

I think the only reason to choose Firefox over Chrome is if you have a lot of extensions that you rely on. I never used any extensions in FF so when I moved to Chrome I didn't miss them. Chrome is starting to catch up on extensions though, they have Adsweep now and a few other ones. Chrome can also sync bookmarks now too.

Chrome is pretty good.


I personally have IE/Chrome/Firefox. Use Firefox the most, Chrome the 2nd most, and IE whenever I want spyware.

Firefly isn't stressful on my box whatsoever... It might use alot of RAM at some points (peaks at 250MB at most), but CPU wise it's pretty low usage. I guess Chrome can be looked at too.

I rely too much on Firefox's addons (adblock, foxy proxy, screengrab) to switch to anything else though.
