Re: why is Firefox bloated and more resource-intensive than it used to be??
Ah. So I haven't been the only one who notices.
It runs okay on my laptop, and Dell, but it runs quite slow on the Compaq (okayokayokay, it is a PII 400 Mhz 384 MB RAM) Tried Swiftfox, runs a bit better, but I'm quite impressed with Opera on this old machine. I wasn't expecting much, and it is much faster. Opens faster, browses faster, even with lots of tabs open. My only beef with Opera is it's more prone to crash. When that happens it gobbles up all the CPU power. (I have tried Dillo and Epiphany and don't like either one.)
But, I have hope for FF. I've heard version 3 is much faster.
