same with crome, generally the 10 most demanding processes are chrome's

Chrome uses a **** ton of memory.
User avatar #23 to #14 - areialview (11/14/2013) [-]
my firefox uses quite a bit of memory. So far I've seen it cap just from today at 1.2 million Kilobytes
User avatar #41 to #14 - techjoker (11/14/2013) [-]
that's only like 100 mb.
User avatar #55 to #41 - ugoboom (11/14/2013) [-]
Do you not see 10 instances of chrome.exe?

That's the biggest problem with chrome, it may be fast, but it takes a ******** of RAM. I can't run it and some heavier games simultaneously, but I can with firefox.
User avatar #75 to #55 - fgtometer (11/14/2013) [-]
14, actually. That's why I stopped using it
User avatar #119 to #75 - ugoboom (11/14/2013) [-]
I know why chrome does that. When it splits up the processes, if one tab crashes, all the others remain uneffected. Usually the crashes are due from plugins. Firefox keeps its tabs under one process, but it keeps its plugins in another process. Both are good systems with some different drawbacks.
User avatar #154 to #119 - adolfushitler (11/14/2013) [-]
what about opera?
User avatar #163 to #154 - ugoboom (11/14/2013) [-]
I have no clue what opera does with it's life.
User avatar #125 to #119 - fgtometer (11/14/2013) [-]
Yeah, I gathered that, but FF rarely crashes either (and 90% of the time you can just recover all the tabs), and I found I just wasn't able to use chrome alongside any other serious software.

Also, chrome wouldn't shut down a lot of those processes. Pretty **** having only 3 or 4 tabs open but about 20 processes eating all of your memory

Also, **** google
User avatar #127 to #125 - ugoboom (11/14/2013) [-]
Yup. Also, customizability > speed. Firefox master race.
User avatar #98 to #14 - Akwardweirdo (11/14/2013) [-]
it uses more if you have a lot of add ons
User avatar #177 to #14 - carfreak (11/15/2013) [-]
When Chrome first became popular it wasn't anywhere near as bad as it is now. I still use Chrome but only because there is still not a browser that can surpass it, at least that I have discovered.

i think something's wrong with your firefox. Close some of your porn tabs.

My firefox barely uses any CPU and I have a ********** laptop
User avatar #105 to #102 - davidispissed (11/14/2013) [-]
then you aren't using it right lol.
User avatar #108 to #105 - dyllygaf ONLINE (11/14/2013) [-]
Haha How should I be using it then? I feel that's an appropriate amount of CPU usage for just browsing fj right now, don't you?
User avatar #114 to #108 - davidispissed (11/14/2013) [-]
are you a one-tabber?
User avatar #116 to #114 - dyllygaf ONLINE (11/14/2013) [-]
Yep, that's all I need
#18 to #7 - fragman ONLINE (11/14/2013) [-]
10%?
sorry but to me that's crazy high for a browser...
User avatar #25 to #18 - davidispissed (11/14/2013) [-]
it's an older computer with a 980MHz P3 CPU. So there isn't much room for much.
#27 to #25 - fragman ONLINE (11/14/2013) [-]
ok, FF is excused.

#86 to #7 - tkuja (11/14/2013) [-]
lol no
#171 to #86 - siemen (11/14/2013) [-]
I completely agree.
a few months old, sorry, had to close them when the browser started using 6 GB ram every day.
User avatar #172 to #171 - tkuja (11/14/2013) [-]
christ you mustve had year old tabs
#173 to #172 - siemen (11/14/2013) [-]
Not really, was merely a test to see how often I open new tabs.
I just stopped closing tabs, and it took me around 3 weeks to get 3k tabs.

I did however once have a 4 year old tab on my old computer.
User avatar #178 to #173 - tkuja (11/15/2013) [-]
did it disintegrate into dust when you opened it

out of interest, what was it
#179 to #178 - siemen (11/15/2013) [-]
I dont fully remember what the tab was about, but I think it was a wikipedia article about something. Kinda recall it being something science related, not completely sure.

iirc, it was in a browser I very rarely used, causing me to not have any need to delete the tabs I had there.

User avatar #8 to #7 - nyz (11/14/2013) [-]
Whenever I work with lots of tabs open, Firefox may start using a lot of CPU. But as soon as I check the Task Manager, it slooowly starts giving back the memory. Like the cat in this gif slowly closes the drawer. I thought some people might relate to this.
User avatar #9 to #8 - davidispissed (11/14/2013) [-]
oooooh. now i see. do you deal with a lot of flash intensive sites?
User avatar #10 to #9 - nyz (11/14/2013) [-]
I watch lots of porn, yes.
User avatar #11 to #10 - davidispissed (11/14/2013) [-]
yeah, you should use Midori for that if you are finding too much CPU usage.

You need to login to view this link

its a bit more lightweight, so it uses fewer resources as it buffers.
User avatar #12 to #11 - nyz (11/14/2013) [-]
I will definitely check it out, thanks.
User avatar #13 to #12 - davidispissed (11/14/2013) [-]
anytime
#60 to #12 - John Cena (11/14/2013) [-]
or just use chrome....

firefox is trying to copy chrome anyhow (the new features, the look, everything, but still worse in performance than chrome)
User avatar #109 to #60 - nogphille (11/14/2013) [-]
chrome is never the answer.
#123 to #109 - John Cena (11/14/2013) [-]
chrome is always the answer
User avatar #126 to #123 - nogphille (11/14/2013) [-]
if you really enjoy the chrome engine, use ironware's browser.

at the least it doesn't run everything through the google servers.
#133 to #126 - John Cena (11/14/2013) [-]
why is it exactly bad if it runs on google servers?

paranoid much? i myself like how i can sync my phone and tablet and pc without doing anything. love how it knows what i want with just typing 1st letter.

chrome is much safer thanks to running everything thru google servers...

they don't actually spy on every single user...


i like chrome because: safer than firefox, faster than firefox, looks clean like i said... faster and safer than other big browser
User avatar #146 to #133 - nogphille (11/14/2013) [-]
good, i'm happy that you enjoy all that functionality.

i'm against the NSA tapping wires and reading your emails for the same reason.
privacy.

it's my data and i don't like it being sent anywhere i don't want it to.

i highly doubt google's using data on individual users, but uses the data to improve their adcrap.. still doesn't mean i have to give away my data.

and yeah.. more secure? if you don't want people to touch your data, then you shouldn't be handing it out in the first place.

it's faster. let's stop there.
#164 to #146 - John Cena (11/14/2013) [-]
use adblocker, no personalized adcrap (which you can also turn off in google if you don't like that being sent anonymously)

more secure against viruses and malwares and pishing sites and so on.

the only real data it stores (heavily encypted) is on a cloud to sync your data thru different computers or platforms. so now dropbox is bad too?
User avatar #132 to #126 - nogphille (11/14/2013) [-]
slight mistake in the software name..

#135 to #132 - John Cena (11/14/2013) [-]
also if i want to use anything else than chrome than i'd use the dragon (even more improved security)

the engine is not actually "chrome" but it's not that big of a surprise from someone like you
User avatar #149 to #135 - nogphille (11/14/2013) [-]
the chrome engine is called chromium.
User avatar #62 - thebestpieever (11/14/2013) [-]
I honestly think that Firefox it's faster than Chrome. However, Chrome looks cleaner and leaner than Firefox and makes my browsing experience more enjoyable because of that.
#94 to #62 - coldbread (11/14/2013) [-]
Also, firefox doesn't record everything you do if you tell it not to.

I really, really liked Opera back in Version 12. This new version 15 is ******** , it basically became the same like Firefox and Chrome. Version 12 had it's flaws, like it wasn't supported by some sites but I really liked the sidebar and the additional features
#141 - dbowveng (11/14/2013) [-]
CPU usage isn't too bad. It like hogging RAM though. Waterfox is basically the 64-Bit version of Firefox
User avatar #6 - etrian (11/14/2013) [-]
I've been using maxthon for the past couple years, I just stopped being lazy long enough to add the CPU usage and download speed monitor to the bottom of my page. Right now my usage is at 5-15%.

chrome was the best browser until they ****** up with the new policies, firefox is just as good plus you feel more *secure* browsing casually youjizz, you go firefox!

Firefox actually won Lifehacker's last browser tests in lowest CPU usage, and has consistently done so in the past. It's just about all it's good for anymore in terms of technical stuff.
User avatar #67 to #40 - fgtometer (11/14/2013) [-]
Other than translate, there's nothing that tempts me to switch. Chrome uses way too much RAM
#70 to #67 - mayoroftownsville (11/14/2013) [-]
Even IE10 tests better than Firefox in most categories. Enjoy beating out Opera, I guess.
User avatar #76 to #70 - fgtometer (11/14/2013) [-]
I guess I misread your comment. What are the disadvantages?
User avatar #92 to #85 - okamiterasu (11/14/2013) [-]
But what about Firefox derivatives like waterfox and palemoon
#96 to #92 - mayoroftownsville (11/14/2013) [-]
**** if I know
User avatar #88 to #85 - fgtometer (11/14/2013) [-]
Differences aren't huge (less than 1/2 second in all but the multiple page one). Also, no disconnect me or noscript addons means I'll stick with FF. Tanx tho
