Okay, I am on your favourite Windows 7 x64. FF v3.5.3 with 8 tabs open = 132MB of RAM now.Which parallel dimension are you living in? Firefox's memory consumption and antics are well known and acknowledged.
Just opened the IE8 on this OS for the first time. No addons, not even flash player installed., 8 tabs = 135MB of RAM. Memory consumption antics? Both are equal over there aren't they.
I have used FF, IE, Chrome, Opera, Safari, Avant, K-Meleon, till now to decide and yes, I have decided that IE whether 8 or not, is not by any means overall better than the others. When it comes to security, Chrome is the best, customisation, FF rules, All in one package, Opera and Speed, Safari. IE may be coming up to the standards set by the other browsers, but certainly me and all the people who have used it have trashed it. Many of us use it only to DL our fav browser.The crowd's opinion does not become wisdom. I've used every browser there is to decide, unlike people who hear from a friend who's heard from another friend who read it on some jack@ass' blog that Firefox is better
Since your conclusions seem to be overly biased in favour of Windows, which I can sense from your
its best to quote Goobi's deleted post.Windows FTW!
What ch****yagiri is this. Manan, why argue with these bigoles (i made that up).
That being said, Windows is a turd, whether 7 or 8 or 9.
Wish you would say the same for the various Linux distros. There is no need to sayWho doesn't? Even God has a problem on his hands - Man.
when Windows has varied problems, none worse than the problems of Linux. Both OSes have problems, as admitted by you and its best if we stop pointing fingers on other's problems when we are far from perfect.Well, these are variants unlike the gazillion distros! Each with it's own dumb @ss problems!
