Waterfox

So ive been using Chrome since day dot, and more recently ive noticed its getting more and more bloated, had 2 tabs open and it was eating about 600MB of ram, only adblock extension installed.

So i got very annoyed, not that i don't have the memory but it was supposed to be an efficient browser, but as with all things it got bloated.

Then i thought to myself time for a browser change, hunted around and came across

Waterfox 64bit Browser

So far i like it alot, better memory management, the fonts look better, and renders pages a lot more smoothly, now im not sure if its the placebo effect, but im sticking with this one for a while. Check it out.

old as f*ck? some old beta version of firefox, isn't it? i remember using it ages ago, had the same multiscreen issues that caused me to switch from firefox to chrome.
i'm fine with g chrome for now, i see no need to switch.

Waterfox is good, easily better than chrome but then again pretty much everything is better than chrome... I have it on my new laptop and its great! It doesn't appear to have the occasional bad releases like Firefox does either. I still prefer to use Opera though as its never crashed on me.
