I like Firefox as a browser. I find it easier to use than Safari. BUT.... Firefox CONSUMES memory and impacts performance much more that safari. Yes... * I am running the most current version of FF * I do not have flash running all the time. It is run on-demand only. * got rid of several plug-ins. * I have done all that FF forums have said to do to improve performance but its still a pig. It drains memory to ZERO and then my systems just locks. This never happens with Safari. So, I'm back to Safari...or perhaps chrome.
