It seems like internet browsing is devolving. I know a lot of this is probably revolving adblock and scripts fighting with it crashing and memory leaking. File under: And this is why we can't all have nice things! I don't think anything has devolved to the point of the Windows experience or anything like that. But from the Mac user perspective... WTF? Any recommendations? Currently running OSX 10.10 (Which I will be staying with for a couple years at least for ease of various 3rd party audio production apps.) I'm still using Firefox. Adblock of course because there is absolutely no choice with the over the top silliness going on! So... You have merely a dozen tabs open and you have to restart the browser periodically when some script crashes and starts memory leaking and runs off with all your RAM. I tried Chrome but fired it immediately when they tried to hide this "updater" app that tries to call home every 20 minutes. (Thank you Little Snitch!) Opened Safari... seems clunky. Some websites treat it like it's not a real browser and just the download app for a real browser (like the running joke Windows users have with Internet Explorer). What am I missing? Or can we really no longer have nice things? Do I have to start running script blockers now too? PS. I have pro Mac machines (for audio production) too. Web browsing apps are like running a calculator app as far as system resources are concerned. This isn't about coaxing performance from an aging machine or lower spec new machine.
