Windows 7: bye bye Firefox

01 Aug 2010   #11

Windows 7 Professional SP1 64 bit

Two seconds here, four seconds there, if you like the browser stay with it. Life goes by fast enough without worrying about your browser speed. Remember life is like a roll of toilet paper, the closer to the end it gets,the faster it goes. So if you like your browser , don't worry about a few seconds to open.

IE8 - a nice surprise

Ditto here. Firefox is slow. IE 8 is significantly faster. It takes less than 2 seconds to load while Firefox around 7-10 seconds. See this thread here for another comment: Was it just me or is IE faster than Firefox at the moment???
