Back to Firefox

So, I just switched my preferred browser back to Firefox. I’d been using Chrome for a while now because it provides seamless (or nearly so) tab syncing between my laptop and my iPhone. Trouble is, Chrome has started leaving this massive processing footprint on my laptop. So, just out of curiosity, I compared the numbers. Being the power user that I am, I currently have about 30 tabs open. In Chrome, those tabs use up almost 2.8 million processes. Firefox — 850,000. Yup, that’s a no-brainer. I’ll just use Firefox Home to open tabs on my phone when I need to.

    1. Yeah, Chrome used to be much more lightweight with a smaller footprint than even Firefox. Somewhere along the line, though, it turned into bloatware.

    1. Yeah, that’s what I’m going to be using the Firefox Home app for. It’s a little additional navigation, but that’s far less frustrating to me than having my computer hang every few minutes while processes get freed up to do other things.

Have anything to add to the conversation?
