Just Switched to Google Chrome

Not sure what the problem was, exactly, with Firefox. Although I liked it, it has been eating up system resources like crazy. For the past month I've had trouble typing posts, as the processor often lagged far behind and couldn't keep up. I'd type entire sentences without seeing them, only to have them pop up (with typos galore, even more than usual) a couple of seconds later.

Firefox is known to be a bit of a system-hog, but it was getting out of hand. I don't know if my software was fragged or being slowed by add-ons I never intended to install or what, but my computer was always running at 50-70% CPU usage.

One neat feature is a task manager to tell you exactly how much trouble each page is giving you, so you can shut down the heavy-CPU-users.

Anyway, I read that Google Chrome is much less taxing on system resources. I don't have many tabs open yet (often I have forty or fifty open) but at the moment I'm between 8% and 12% of system resources being used.

I'll let you know if it turns out well, or turns out annoying. So far, despite my general loathing of Google, it's looking okay.

Okay... Just blitzed it by opening new tabs and the usage sometimes spikes to 50%, but doesn't sit there as a default. Either way, I'm still able to type.
