    Nice find. However, I've not noticed this stuttering. I'll check it out later. Setting the refresh interval to one second should reveal it...

    it looks like hitching due to internet lag, however audio plays fine while only video stutters.


    It seems to get worse the more tabs you have open, and the longer the browsers been running. (so try opening 50 tabs of TPU pages, closing 45 of em, and see what happens)

    Ok Mussels Would this effect Hulu Desktop if Firefox was your Default browser?

    This begs the question why doesn't Firefox just save the browser state when it changes? I guess it's easier to just write a lazy counter.

    I have no idea what hulu desktop is. this will affect anything running through the firefox browser - and possibly be a cause of lag so long as firefox is running (i noticed lag in L4D2 when firefox was left running)

    because it would delay the loading/closing of new tabs, and people would bitch about the lag.

    Yeah I just checked it's only available in the US...

    Hulu Desktop is it's own Browser....

    It's the best online TV I have ever seen...

    I think it will replace my satellite Service if it keeps expanding like it is
