Poorly coded bloated software that will slow your computer
Member Name: shuttlex
Disadvantages: Slow, poorly coded, memory leaks, requires 4GB of ram minimum
Until 2 years ago, Firefox was perhaps the best browser available. Upon switching from Microsoft Internet Explorer, I was impressed. Firefox seemed faster and included many add ons. Also, who would want to use a browser that is made by a company that has such a huge monopoly.
However, recently Firefox has gone downhill. For the last year my notebook computer and netbook both appeared to struggle to run Firefox on Windows XP. With a Firefox browser open and a DVD video running at the same time, the system just felt slow and sluggish.
Recently I installed Google Chrome, since then all problems have been resolved on my laptop. Google Chrome is a lot faster than Firefox and the difference is especially obvious if you are running a single core CPU with less than 2GB of ram. Firefox uses up a lot of ram making a simple task such as checking your email a chore. It's a shame since Firefox is open source software that was once reliable.
Any computer made within the last 5 years should easily allow you to do basic tasks such as checking your email, however Firefox will make make your PC seem as if it only has 100mhz CPU with 128mb of ram.
Summary: Avoid this software
