[F] Firefox 5 with Windows 64 Bit Support Coming - Page 4

post #31 of 55
There is going to be FF4 beta 11 and 12. FF4 was delayed a bit.

FF is going to increase the frequency of major update like Chrome. If I recall correctly, Chromium has gone from version 8 all the way to 11 in a year.

I am currently using the 64-bit build of Minefield. It works good so far outside of certain non 64-bit plugins.

Here's the thing I have with Firefox, prepare yourselves as a story will now ensue.

I was using Firefox, browsing normally, couple of tabs open, when I wonder if it still have those damn memory issues that plague it. I open up System Monitor, and lo and behold, it's literally <100MB away from topping 1GB. 1GB of RAM. Now tell me, is that necessary?

So, I use Chrome. Though one thing I wonder about Chrome is, when are they going to slow down in version numbers? Will we have Chrome 42 by this time next year?

FF4 betas has better memory usage. Comparing the latest FF nightly build with the latest Chromium build, FF uses much less memory.

How about they all concentrate on getting FF4 out as it has been taking FOREVER before they start speaking about FF5.

Add up all the tabs in chrome (or go to about:memory in chrome) and you'll see that chrome uses the same if not more memory overall.

I may be incorrect, but wouldn't a x64 binary help prevent some attacks. If so, x64 is quite important.

lol, i already did that because i was curious if FF was really eating so much RAM
then i realized, chrome was also eating that much RAM
(i opened the same tabs in chrome of course)

so yeah, dudes point is moot about the FF mem usage.

there's no clear cut browser winner. as far as memory usage they all can eat up a lot of memory depending on how you use them. but for me opera features beats them all hands down its not even close. i dont care how much memory opera uses.

2nd best browser for me is chrome. nice simple basic browser.

I wanna know when web pages are going to be formatted properly formatted for 16:9/16:10 monitors. At 1920x1080 I have to squint my eyes just to read most text on web pages. And the giant chunks of white spaces to the left and right don't help either.
