    Still nothing compared to Chrome and Safari, but great nonetheless.

    We've already discussed about a better version. Too bad the obese Safari is missing in both.

    unfortunately I've moved on to "opera next' which loads up in 5 seconds compared to the 20 seconds it takes firefox to load. If they do fix the "bloat" I will probably move back to firefox, its a solid browser but it is slow.

    What is "unfortunate" about your moving to Opera or anyone moving to any other browser?

    It's unfortunate when you get used to a piece of software and then you see it decline in performance and you're forced to uninstall it and try out new software and get used to that new software.

    I hated having to move from Firefox to Chrome.

    @jonyjoe81: Did you have a clean profile, or was it full of add-ons?

    @Hungry Man: I might've moved as well, if it wasn't for Firefox 4.

    The sad fact is that the new findings of memory bloat will only make it into Firefox 7 - sigh!

    I'm still using FF 3.6.18.

    "Unfortunately", I get the impression that browsers improve over time.

    "Unfortunately", I haven't learned to appreciate how relevant or useful comments about moving to other browsers are in a topic about a specific browser.

    Than suck it up?

    ~Phrase removed~ lol if you're going to cry about a topic not going the direction you like you can always... post what you'd like to discuss.

    edit: And your impression that browsers improve over time is kiiiinda the point -- they have highs and lows and people don't like waiting out the lows.

    Thanks for the post Ron. Too bad we have to wait until version 7.
