"Memory hog"2.5 starson by todbran
Pros: Security is good
Cons: Memory usage
Summary: I was really hoping that the memory issues would be adressed with this update. It wasn't. At times, Firefox will use 2 to 3 times the memory than IE or Opera will when browsing the same pages. Do a search online about this problem and you will find thousands of complaints. Opera and IE (even though IE crap) do a wonderful job with the memory use. Bottom line, good browser (not great). If you are using an older computer, it more than likely won't be able to handle the 120,000k of memory that Firefox uses after prolonged use. Bottom line 2, DON'T USE IE. Even with the memory issues, Firefox is better. If you don't like the memory usage, try Opera. Rating: With the memory issue, 5, if the issue gets resolved, 9.
