I love Firefox 3.5 – The beta pre4 itself rocks!!! Super Speedy , Surf Speedy

Scenario:

I am a hard core fan and promoter of Ubuntu Linux in Desktop OSes. But when the most important application in this internet era, gets buggy, sloppy, sluggish, even I start thinking about SeaMonkey or Opera as my browser. Opera is out of option in Linux atleast. But SeaMonkey was truly under my consideration until I decided to try Firefox 3.5.

Firefox 2 versions crashed very often & Firefox 3, took 60% of the system memory and much CPU as well. A straight leap from version naming from 3.1 to 3.5 itself had something to say and I heard what it said 🙂

Awesome!!!
Awesome!!!
Awesome!!!

But I would say thanks to Google. I wonder if Google hadn’t released Chrome, Firefox developers wouldn’t have ever felt a challenge. They foresaw the chances of Chrome winning over Firefox in Linux too, once it gets released for Linux Platform. Being open source, I believe Chrome can improve and release a faster browser, faster than Firefox 3.5. Still see lots of room for improvement in Firefox 3.5. But my tests says it is faster than firefox 3.0.9 by approximately 200%. I tested with 24 browser tabs opened in Firefox 3.5 and 1 browser window with firefox 3.0.9

Vote Open Source, Get a better world!
