Haha, you think firefox is good. Thats funny... Especially with the 12 or 13 memory leaks it has. Leave it open for an hour, it takes up all 8 gigs of ram

really? that didn't occur on me

I had mine opened for about 18hrs+ and consumed around 400MB+ ram

EDIT: And i know a guy who had Firefox opened for 2 months straight with 50 like open tabs and consumed around 2gb+ ram he has 16gb so he really didn't care :lol:

Opera. You can customize just about everything on it. I'm running Windows XP but if you looked at my skin you'd think I'm running 7. It's faster than firefox and doesn't slow down and freeze from every little script. Every 5 minutes on FF it seems I get a script not responding popup. Chrome has way too many bugs for me to use. It uses a lot less RAM than FF which is great with only a pathetic 386MB (I know it doesn't add up, it's a long story). Opera also has a ton of features. It was the first to have tabs and is the first to have tab groups and you can restore and arrage tabs inside the window.

Opera is the most customizable. I've got Windows 7 style buttons on Windows XP. It isn't a memory **** like firefox and doesn't crash a fraction of the number of times that chrome does. Opera has built-in IRC, RSS, and email clients. It's opera:config page is a LOT easier to understand and use than firefox's messy about:config, and it's more powerful, too. Opera is loaded with features everywhere. There's follower tabs, pinned tabs, tab groups (AWESOME), tab cloning, and you can restore and arrange your tabs alongside each other right in the window. Combine that last one with the Fit to Width option in the Zoom menu and you can set up a nice little online gaming window. Got all your chatrooms on this side of the screen and then the game taking up most of the screen on the right. It has a ton of cool extensions, too. I have a mini wolfram alpha in a button.
