lol, I straight out call you a retail. I point out where the comment was off-topic and move on. I'm glad your not interested in my bullet points, and will get back to the point.

"Memory usage: Over 300 individual memory leaks have been plugged, and a new XPCOM cycle collector completely eliminates many more. Developers are continuing to work on optimizing memory use (by releasing cached objects more quickly) and reducing fragmentation."


Having looked at your note, I cannot help but giggle that you are using Vista...perhaps you should start with using an OS with space for applications.

Oddly my *whole* machine uses less than that...and I'm doing more with it, and firefox has been open all day.

I feel embarrassed for you that you cannot read the statement above, and draw an alternative conclusion to mine...I suspect because their isn't one. Perhaps you should have taken a course that would help you build some skills.

I actually listed *3 alternative* linux browsers in my posts try to spot, Hint: you actually quote them; One use regularly, and consider part of my essential toolbox.

If you do not understand my point about enlightenment...just trust me, computers *used* to contain an awful lot less memory than they do now, and enlightenment+linux was more than my cutting edge computer could cope with. You should re-read my point its quite clear.

I loved this don't you have like a degree or something... I'd love you to look a tiny little more in depth at where the slowdown between you getting you pages is, and then talk about bottlenecks. start looking into things like latency, but I actually mention alternatives to Firefox...and you don't even recognize them.

Yes your comments are only about promoting alternative browsers, and your comments says it all.

Firefox's own release notes which I have quoted four times, but basically in direct contradiction they have focused on memory leaks; now moving to memory footprint...perhaps you should have paid more attention in class ;) For this I will now call you lying scum, simply because of what they have completed, and what they are working on.

You're not supposed to pick parts of other's posts and mod them down just because that single part is off-topic. Talking about FireFox, current release or older ones, is very much on-topic. The following quote is very much off-topic but should I nitpick about that and mod you down because of that?

Having looked at your note, I cannot help but giggle that you are using Vista...perhaps you should start with using an OS with space for applications.

Besides, no matter what OS one uses doesn't make a difference as to how much FireFox uses memory. If you use Linux then fine, have fun, but that doesn't give you any right to belittle others' opinions nor does it mean you're always right. Oh, and picking on someone just for using Vista is quite childish IMHO. It's a personal choice after all, and there might be f.ex. some apps which he needs and which don't work under Linux..And Linux still sucks for gaming :/

Yes your comments are only about promoting alternative browsers, and your comments says it all.

So? There are some things that other browsers do better than Firefox. Firefox does some things better than others. To make a balanced choice people need to know about both.

I'm not sure why you think your promotion of an alternative browser (Firefox) is somehow better than his, if that's even his motive in the first place (you seem to be reading a lot into his motivations).

"So? There are some things that other browsers do better than Firefox. Firefox does some things better than others. To make a balanced choice people need to know about both. "

Absolutely, and that applied to almost all competing products. I don't like the word better. I actually spend a lot of time talking about suitability, although in particular interface is important.

"I'm not sure why you think your promotion of an alternative browser (Firefox) is somehow better than his, if that's even his motive in the first place (you seem to be reading a lot into his motivations)."

Not interested in promoting *anything*. I only question peoples motives it flies in the face of the truth, in this case it flies in the face of his posting record.
