Malwarebytes now has an extension for Firefox.
Tried the firefox latest browser, takes more than 1GB RAM all the time.
Waterfox. Unrelated, but are there any cleaners that delete leftovers of programs that are in appdata and registry? I installed and uninstalled multiple DAWs just to try them.
Revo rips everything out
Must be a conflict of some kind. I only noticed this problem with Chrome whenever I had any ad-blocker, but do not have this issue with Firefox. Opera was my 2nd choice and I found it too used about the same resouces as Firefox.
Opera now blocking crypto-mining web sites
Just updated FF Quantum to 58.0 today
Google's Location History tracking is creepier than thought
Nice add-on for FF, WebApi Manager 0.9.2.1
Pgs. load nice and quick.
Safari on Mac and Chrome on Windows
Firefox. It always had the best addons and functionality.
Switched from FF ESR to 58 now . ESR tended to crash too often lately in connection with some AddOns (i.e. IDM) and since a lot sites embed video content it became a PITA to use another browser for some sites. After a day of searching i found replacements for most of my beloved AddOns, only exclusion being some TabMixPlus features. After a quite short time of getting used to new usage behavior needed i'm fine now . As long as Night Mode Pro works, all is good.
FF for now. I plan to transition to Vivaldi after they add sync to their stable release.
The memory usage in FF since Quantum (v57) is abnormally high in my experience.
The thingie you trade when using multi-threaded x64 performance. I still must admit it's rock-solid so far .
Haha yes, I know.
I reduced the content process limit from 4 to 2 but it seems to have made little difference. The browser is fast and responsive, I must admit.
I have round-about 1,5 GB usage, so with 16 GB there's nothing to pee on about this .
1- Don't use chrome
2- Google makes more than %90 of their profits by advertising
3- They do targeted advertising which means they target you and they will have a profile on you.
4- Firefox is okay (more or less)
5- Security and privacy goes together. Don't give up your data to Google.
firefox is not okay at all.. uses vast resources. better use u-light or something. same functionality,same plugins,, less pain.but i can only say amen to shun google
