Woke up this morning and I fired up my Firefox browser to an update, and wow it just feels so good I had to share it.

edit: It is super fast

Well I am glad someone made a thread about it.
My burden is reduced.



It's also good on the CPU and memory

Unfortunately I'm one of those whose Firefox just hibernates the system more and more. None of the solutions on Mozilla's website work for me, except when the task manager is running in a window....bizarre.



Been on the mac os beta for quantum a few weeks now, in the hopes that it's more resource friendly than the old version and I like it so far.

It eliminated almost all of my add ons.

So I will just wait until my add on's can catch up and I will re-update.



  • Deadliest mass shooting by an individual in US history (10/01/2017)
  • Deadliest high school shooting in US history (02/14/2018)
  • Deadliest massacre of Jews in US history (10/27/2018)
  • Political assassination attempt of TWO former presidents(and 10+ other people)  (10/23/2018 - and beyond)

Bye google



I didn't notice it being faster, and now the refresh button is on the left, how dare they move it :)
It would be nice it it auto refreshed the page on re-opening the browser. For some reason it always loads the old info (with new adds ofcourse). Tricked me plenty of time with old weather news.
I guess it uses less ram now, currently a it over 500mb in use over 4 instances, was easily double that before.

Edit: Actually now I pay attention to it, it is a lot faster! Or maybe VgChartz is in a good mood today.



It's a faster with loading that's for sure. Great update. Keeping 60 tabs open works like a breeze .

I also keep missing the refresh button on the right side. It will have to adjust to the new location. Still a great update .



In the wilderness we go alone with our new knowledge and strength.

It seems pretty great so far. I got some strange freezes on Twitter yesterday though, so I'm worried it might have introduced some problems as well. That, or some of my extensions is now causing trouble.

You might find this list useful. It contains a lot of add-ons, their porting status, and possible replacements under the new system.
