    "One Obvious Improvement With This Version"

    June 11, 2012  |   By ritchie58

    Pros

    In my opinion the most customizable browser to date with many extensions, plugins, themes and personas to choose from! I tried the others and always seem to go back to Firefox in the end for one reason or another.

    Cons

    Google Chrome will always have Firefox beat on speed I think.

    Summary

    The most noticeable improvement with the roll out of version 13 is that scrolling up or down on a web page became much more smoother!Over earlier versions Mozilla has made very good improvements in RAM usage (A big problem for some folks in earlier versions)and crashing problems. For me it's very rare for Firefox to crash. I use the extension StatusbarEx to monitor FF's RAM usage and have seen for myself the difference from the older versions. Extension compatibility when updating to a new version has also been much improved. I started using Firefox way back with the 2 point something or other version. So I have seen many changes to the browser over the years. A few not so good but the vast majority of them have been welcome changes. Regards, ritchie58...
