[citation][nom]Kileak[/nom]FF7 had a great story. I liked FF9 best even though most people don't. Wonder if this FF7 will star Cloud as the hero too.[/citation]
Hes talking about final fantasy lol. This is about Firefox.
[citation][nom]x Heavy[/nom]What is with the Lady in the picture? Is that supposed to imply that anyone can use Firefox? Or is it supposed to somehow draw millions of Pre-puberty teens to download?[/citation]
[citation][nom]burnley14[/nom]Just downloaded this new version, and it looks like they changed the fonts. It's a subtle difference, but the fonts are definitely different from previous versions of FF.[/citation]
Opera is currently version 11.53, yet it goes through more changes with the sub .xx versions that Chrome or FF. As an Opera user, 11.50 brought some very nice updates to the UI... but a few problems Opera has been version 11 for about a 12 months, yet it has had about 5 updates.
If OPERA followed Chrome/FF version numbers for the past 24 months, it would be version 40!!! Who ever sees versions 20+ on their software.
[citation][nom]otacon72[/nom]"manages memory more efficiently" So it won't suck up 500MB with 4 tabs open? I was a long time FF user but have ditched it. Those same 4 tabs in IE9 only use 170MB. Plus there's that stupid plug-in container sucking up another 40MB.[/citation]
Interesting. For me it's the complete opposite. Well, IE9 uses slightly more memory than FF7. And Chrome eats about half less than either browser. Same 4 websites on their homepage. Toms Hardware, HardOCP, Cnet, and Engadget.
Google Chrome 14.0.835.186 = 230,488k
IE 9.00.8112.16421 = 473,996k
Firefox 7.0 = 400,672k

Yeah, I wish FF kept it's old update scheme. Only MAJOR updates changed the main version number and how it should be. Small updates here and there only warrant a small version number change. Also why Opera has been on the same version for a year, no major changes to the browser engine have been made.
When there is a major change in Opera... it gets a NEW number. 9, 10, 11 are noticeably different. Opera is the worst at memory, but ALSO - it caches very complete history. ie: I can cold boot into Opera with 15 tabs and still have back button histories.
I can close out opera tabs and windows, and bring them back. And GROUPING is making management easier and also more... tabs. For example, I work on two websites, I have 2-4 tabs in each group (think Win7 task bar) that I use every day.
Currently, I have 19 TABS opened. some are on image sites withs tons of thumbnails (eats memory). My Opera memory usage is 599mb... 19 tabs.
I'm still a bit surprised people don't use Opera more... as my clients and friends give it a try, most continue to use nowadays. Especially since FF 4~7 is a Opera Clone nowadays.
[citation][nom]Kileak[/nom]I was just pointing out how Firefox is becoming just like the Final Fantasy series and how the "Cloud" might be becoming the center focus soon.I'm stupid. But reading the previous comments about Firefox calling it "FF" brought back memories[/citation]
lol ohhhhhh. Well you were being rather creative with that. I hope FF10 doesnt get filled with too much SIN in that case.
