Chrome VS Firefox

Monday, April 29, 2013 by kona0197 | Discussion: Personal Computing

I'll admit I have been a long time Firefox user. However I have noticed lately that Firefox has become more and more bloated and still has a memory leak. There are even sites I visit that Firefox will not work correctly. Wincustomize is one, Facebook is another. On Firefox, Wincustomize takes forever to load. On Chrome, a matter of seconds. On Firefox, I have issues when scrolling down my news feed on Facebook. Firefox just freezes up. I thought newer hardware would fix that, but nope. Even with extensions disabled Firefox has issues with Facebook. I have no issues at all with Facebook on Chrome.

So my question is this: Is Chrome better, faster than Firefox these days?

Sheer nonsense. Stop trying to pull the wool over our eyes.

Wow, Palemoon is cool, its slightly faster, but i still get the issue where most of Youtube's images are missing and just white.

EDIT:

AdblockPlus was blocking Youtube's main image code at my request...oops.

..fairly straight forward, you think...

eg.. i use ff normally with noscript and all. that doesn't work with certain googledocs.. so.. i use chrome for that

I quit using IE8 for Firefox along time ago, and other than the memory leaks, I love it. I like Firefox's add-ons and personas, though I need to see about trying AdBlock Plus. I tried Chrome, but it seems too simplistic to me. About the only reason I would reinstall Chrome is to test website compatibility. I would give IE9 and/or 10 a try, but Microsoft doesn't seem to want XP users such as myself to have a browser comparable to Firefox and Chrome, I still use XP on a daily basis.

Palemoon includes an importer for all your FF stuff.

Unless your not on windows, then no Pale Moon for you.(Win. only clone)
