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.
