  1. Firefox 3 sucks so much.. it literally sucks your CPU time. It’s using 50% of CPU when idling! Such piece of crap…

  3. Firefox 3.0 has been stellar on my computer. Both the Mac and PC versions.

    I actually switched back to it from Safari 3.0 on my Mac (been using Firefox on Windows since Phoenix 0.1 all those years ago).

  5. It may depend on what you have loaded; try it w/ a blank startup page and all plugins disabled.

    Running gmail for example, my beta1 uses 10-30% cpu while the gmail app is pre-fetching email messages (or whatever else they are doing in the new version in the background). Using 50b to 185mb of ram.

    Google reader, just sits quietly zero cpu and used about 20mb memory.

  7. Geeesh, memory leak bug-infested edition, as seems the trend of late, aka Apple. I am guessing it’s not working with the plug-in’s or something, but I got high memory on the desktop plug-in free. Better on ease-of-use, and Gecko 1.9 seems to provide a speed boost, but gawd it’s still a memory hog, 1.5 was about the last ver. I was happy with. Opera 9.5 beta’s cooking this Fox, but will wait for final.

    “Running fine on Scoble’s XP machine” real world translation meaning it’s a dog, that or Vista.

  9. Just downloaded and tried it. It is noticeably faster on Vista, however I could not really figure out what is new in it (I noticed a places folder at the top left hand side and read that it has support for offline applications).

    It looks like there are some memory leaks because leaving it on for a while is making my system hang up frequently

  11. It’s amazing that you could tell it was so much faster after only a few seconds. Most of us would have to use it for minutes or even an hour before we could develop such an enlightened opinion.
