Mozilla & Gecko clones "One of the most interesting Mozilla Labs projects has now stagnated. Is the project dead? Does it have a future? The Mozilla developer who led the project tells all. Back in the summer of 2008, Mozilla began development of an experimental add-on called Ubiquity, providing new command mash-up capabilities for the Firefox browser. After just over a year of development, Mozilla is now pulling back on the effort, but that doesn't mean it hasn't been successful. The current release of Ubiquity is version 0.1.9.1, and was released on January 20th of this year. To date, Ubiquity has garnered more than 420000 downloads, according to the Mozilla add-ons site. So what is happening with Ubiquity now?"

Ubiquity doesn’t sound very ubiquitous right about now…

Ubiquity is or was AWESOME I use it almost every day when I use firefox.. the problem now is not ubiquity or jetpack or whatever the problem is that from the most popular modern browsers only IE is worst than firefox. Firefox is slow, startup time is slow, javascript engine is slow have many many memory leaks and the old addons makes things even worst.

Firefox is slow, startup time is slow, javascript engine is slow have many many memory leaks and the old addons makes things even worst.

Opera and Chrome start a little bit faster and are about twice as fast as Firefox in javascript benchmarks. Firefox uses the least amount of memory and none of the big 5 browsers have known big memory leaks.

So are you a troll or do you know something nobody else knows?
