Mozilla & Gecko clones "Firefox OS could actually be wildly successful, no matter how underwhelming the actual phones may be. And that's because - at least for now - you're not the customer; your carrier is." I'm extremely disappointed by Firefox OS so far. There's nothing wrong with the low-end hardware we've seen during MWC, but there is something wrong with low-end hardware that can't even properly run its operating system. To make matters worse, carriers are the boss here. Terrible first impression.

On Linux I bet? On Windows Chrome is much faster than Firefox.

True, this is on GNU/Linux. After all of my addons were installed, it still felt more responsive even when I used to use windows, though (chrome needed much more addons due to lacking functionality).

Yeah so ludicrous that FF devs tried to do the same thing (the Electrolysis project) but backed down because it was a too big change to their codebase..

Well, considering that the RAM problem seems to be related to it, and that with a combination of good session management and load-on-demand after a restart, the issue of pages crashing the browser is alleviated, it seems silly.
Aaron Seigo reposted something on his blog the other day about how it was proving a limitation for web app developers, too.
