Mozilla & Gecko clones "Mozilla has announced a new alpha release of its Fennec mobile browser for Android and the Nokia N900. Fennec offers support for add-ons and has tight integration with Firefox Sync, a browser synchronization service that was formerly called Weave. The support for Firefox Sync is arguably Fennec's killer feature, especially because Mozilla is planing to include the synchronization features out-of-the-box in Firefox 4. Users will be able to have access to the their bookmarks, browsing history, and tabs across all of their computers and supported mobile devices."

Knowing FF for PC takes so much RAM, I can only imagine what will happen to my free RAM when I launch FF on my Hero and probably that battery will drain quite quickly. Not worth it.

You are drawing a conclusion based on speculations.

I switched from IE to FF about two years ago but now I am considering Chrome or IE again due to FF resource usage.

Then you shouldn't get anywhere near Opera... whose problem is definitely not startup time (where it flies) but shutdown time: the process never disappears from the task manager in under 10 seconds. I've had instances where, after 15 minutes, the process was still running. What would be so hard to do that the shutdown would take ages, I don't know.


OOo got their act together....

Very true. Some of the previous versions were a real pain as to startup speed.
