The search for the Goldilocks browser and why Firefox might be “just right” for you


Multi-process Firefox is fast like other browsers, but won’t suck up memory and slow down your computer as Chrome will sometimes do.

I like that you can set FF to use more memory in this new release, finally a way to use all that memory I have :Laughing:
Install ARCH
You'll never need to install it again

Heck... with the old FF from a few generations ago (32.x or so), it had no trouble at all tying up all my RAM; even without any special settings for that. ;)

Fortunately, FF has become better behaved these days when it comes to RAM/CPU usage.
