Firefox Vs. Mozilla

Categories: [ IT ]

I installed yesterday Firefox 2.0.0 on my desktop computer, which is a silent, low consumption computer based on a Via C3 processor (1GHz, 256 MB RAM). Guess what? When scrolling down a long page (the main page of this blog), Firefox was slower than Mozilla 1.7.5 which I have used for years. Mozilla was scrolling down more or less smoothly, using up to 70% of the CPU time, whereas Firefox was not smooth at all, using 100% of the CPU most of the time. Firefox maybe an advanced browser, but definitely not a lightweight one whatever some people may claim. I think I'll stick to plain old Mozilla for still some time.
