Re: LOL, I'm not sure if you're trolling me or not but...

Not trolling. Just saying that I started when '640kb should be enough for everyone'. Yet I felt like my pretty good computer was lacking because it had 4gb ram until past december I bought 4 more. In the past, software used to adapt to hardware. Quake was pretty good without any add-on gfx accelerator, and playable on medium level hardware (admiteddly it was not designed with low-end hardware in mind). But today... Something is a memory hog? More ram. Something goes slow? Upgrade this, put more beef there, change everything...

About Firefox, it's not slow here and I rarely visit any site with ads which slow me down. I tend to not visit those sites anymore, instead of using any ad blocker. I didn't like Chrome too much all the times I've used it, and I've tried to change back to old style whenever Firefox changed UI to something 'new', 'trendy' or 'chromelike'. I still have my top main menu.

But yes, it's a memory hog. I've read some articles about Firefox' roadmap on slimming it, but I don't know how succesful that'll be, if it's ever done. Most things tend to become bloatware with time, e.g. Avast! now is hideously bloated, specially since the last program update. I don't want an antivirus to mess with program priorities.

I can't get it right / Get it right / Since I met you...
