On Firefox performance,
For the last couple of months I have been plagued by real bad firefox performance. My colleagues kept harping about ditching this old browser and switching to chromium, the latest sexiest thingie. But you see I am an old dog and I really like to keep good software, so I tried to follow every blog site about firefox performance tuning. The eye opener was about:addons which showed that LastPass was “probably problematic”.
Well I disabled it and lo and behold Firefox is no longer using two of my ‘top’s CPUs at full throttle.
So, don’t blame Firefox! Remember: the net elders did not blame sendmail either!
