Windows 7: Why I choose Firefox.

Windows 7 Home Premium x64
Why I choose Firefox.

That seems ridiculous for 1 Tab open, and 4 Extensions.

Sorry, but I don't see your point
Is there any real gain in using less processes?
Chrome just uses a separate process for every tab (AND for every extension).
And if you add them up you get about to the same number Firefox uses as well (at least here )
That alone wouldn't be a criterion for me to like or dislike a browser.
I use firefox almost from the time it came out and even if it's slower compared to Chrome it's still fast enough for me.(except v4.x BETA which is here extremely slow and sluggish)
But to each his own

Win7 Home Premium 64x

yeah, but that list is up to 130mb used. I never see mine reach over 70mb... not sure though. I will check on this and post a snip if I can. I also like Firefox because of the addons. I don't know if I can find comperable addons for chrome, but I might give it a shot

I tried already...there are a growing number of extensions out there for chrome but not nearly as many as for FF yet (or at least the one I favor are not out yet)
My chrome uses 116.000K right now (3 tabs and ~6 or 8 extensions)
FF uses 89.300 K (4 tabs, 39 Extensions)
So OK FF is easier on the system (I use both as I see fit
