The only thing that can save Firefox now is that its lead developers shed their archaic "multi-process is bad" mindset, and do it like Chrome and IE9. A separate process for each tab, and extension; a separate plugin container process for each plugin.

That would be a lot of processes for some of us . . .

I've had some issues recently with Firefox but I must say that with the latest update I've never experienced a crash or something similar ;)
My use of Firefox is pretty heavy, sometimes I find myself with 100+ tabs open across monitors and even if it crashes It lets me restart from where it crashed without any problem!

If I REALLY had to change browser I would use Opera for sure, I downloaded Chrome once and I didn't like it :shadedshu

Firefox

It is big news.
But I will only switch from Firefox if I had a real reason which I don't. And when it comes to preferences I take the Firefox team over the giant eat-all-market corporation (Google) any day.

I don't have anything against Google but I believe in competition. i don't believe in one company suits all.

Mid due Firefox is still number 1 in Europe ... IE seconds closely

But I don't want a process for each tab. It would be good in a way but it would clutter up the task manager! :(

Exactly. It should just limit the number of processes to however cores/threads you have available. Or better yet, let the user choose how many threads via an advanced setting.

i think the fact that chrome advertises on TV and on the worlds most popular search engine has more to do with chromes success than the fact that chrome uses separate processes. nothing will save firefox, it will just turn into a very niche browser within 2 years, just like opera.

Wow... nice misleading numbers!

How many of us FX users have installed AdBlock or NoScript, and are actively blocking their scripts to track users? I for one don't even remember when I've added them to NoScript, but they are there, blocked, can't track me. And I'm sure some custom AdBlock lists also have them blocked.

Where are the numbers? All I'm seeing are percent, for proper "world wide" statistics, why didn't they provide numbers in hundred of million of users use this or that?

Hm... smells like masked publicity for their tracking products.

I've seen more PCs coming shipped with Chrome too now. That likely has more to do with it than actually drawing people away from Firefox. Course Mozilla's stupid version numbers haven't helped.

Being a Firefox user, I am surprised.
Being an ex-FF user and a Chrome user for about 2 years, I'm not at all surprised.

That would be a lot of processes for some of us . . .
So, whats that matter, adding them together isn't any more memory usage than a single FF as far as I know.

But I don't want a process for each tab. It would be good in a way but it would clutter up the task manager! :(
Do you keep your task manager organized and pretty at all times? I mean how much do you really look in your task manager, and if it is cluttered, sort it alphabetically and it's not cluttered as it groups them all together.

Until Google manages to fix their own broken extensions i'm not amused. Their stupid Google Mail Check extension has been broken for ages (many months) and even though everyone is crying about it in comments, no one updates it. When you click bug report link it just says, contact the developer. Well hello, YOU are the developer. There is no general Google mail though so who to contact!?

I'm talking about the issue where icon for the gmail checker is checking for mail on startup and then just turns grey instead red or red with a number of new mails. Since i use GMail all the time daily, it's really retarded. I'm not gonna use 3rd party extension for it.
