FireFox
« on: January 08, 2012, 08:07:01 AM »
Hi Shane,

    I understand that you like using Firefox? I've tried recently Google chrome and honestly it is slower than ie9, at least it is on my machine. IE9 loads pages very quick for me (blink of an eye really), as far as downloads are concerned I use a paid program called internet download manger (which takes over all downloads for web browsers). With this I can download a 300meg file in 20-30 seconds. Is Firefox honestly significantly faster? I want to try it but I also hate installing software only to uninstall because I don't use it (I don't have anything installed that I don't use). I'm looking for insight here especially for hardware acceleration.

OK just tried Firefox and wow, I'm impressed, it is faster than ie9. Do know why Google chrome was so snail slow on my system. Any tweaks to improve more speed on Firefox?

I dont use chrome so I am not sure.

Fixfox has tons of add ons and I personally don't do anything to try to speed it up. I use a few add ons for my own purposes and that's about it :-)

Okay no problem. One more thing. Why is Microsoft .net Framework Assistant 0.0.0 an add on?
