Mozilla & Gecko clones Over the weekend, the crew at Tom's Hardware was busy testing the recently-released Firefox 22 using the usual bevy of benchmarks. This roundup included Chrome 27, Firefox 22, IE10, and Opera 12, along with the new Chromium-based build of Opera Next (alos known as Opera 15).

I'm running a quad core i5 with 8GB here and I'm not having any serious issues with either browser under Windows 7. Though, both are prone to slowdowns with a bunch of tabs open, and occasionally Firefox does lock up on me, but usually only if my computer is already doing something crazy and other apps lock up too. I'm on the release channel for both browsers, so perhaps your issues may be related to being on the dev or beta channel?

On GNU/Linux (Crunchbang to be specific) Firefox (Iceweasel) is rock solid and fast, though I'm on version 20.0. Chromium is fast and stable too, but I'm having plugin issues with it so I'm sticking with Iceweasel for now.
