Hi, I was just curious whether you guys experience firefox a bit more laggy, taking up more cpu usage.
It seems that my cpu usage spikes up very high everytime I go back and forth in the firefox browser, which makes the whole experience thing very laggy.
Also since my cpu is very close to me, I can hear the fan go high pitch sound everytime I go back and forth with this browser. I wonder if anyone experience this also.
My system is quite good still, with 768 ram and p4 2.4
I am using the latest firefox 1.0.
I've got almost 100% CPU load when 2-3 flash animations are present on a web-site, and 70-80% load when going back and forth in the browser and the same when scrolling up and down on a page.
T-bird 1400, 512mb ram
Actually that wasn't the case for me, with Firefox on Windows. In Windows it would load up in 5-8 seconds and get some lag on initial operation (it would start with a blank page and when i typed the first address in the address bar, it would lag about half a second - afterwards, no more lag). In linux it starts up almost instantaneous and i get no kind lag at any time. It's sweet!
Anyway if you want a small, fast browser, try dillo that's what I use for quicky pageviews.
(skee@Zeon ~)$ time dillo dillo_dns_init: Here we go! Disabling cookies. Nav_open_url: Url=>about:splash< Dillo: normal exit! real 0m1.772s user 0m0.037s sys 0m0.014s (skee@Zeon ~)$ time mozilla-firefox real 0m1.172s user 0m0.525s sys 0m0.090s
yes, i have used dillo from time to time, but it's very limited. It doesn't have extensions, tab browsing, and ssl support.
It's fast but really no frills.
Same problem here, but it seems to be the new version for me, it was fast with low cpu usage until i upgraded to the new version. i would go back to it but i cleaned old versions from pacmans cache : /
