PastaLover's Journal: Freaks 1

Journal by PastaLover

I just noticed nobody on slashdot hates me. (freaks list is empty) Silly I know but come on people I've made some pretty dumb/flameable posts in the past.

Anyway my real reason for posting is a followup on my appreciation of firefox's rendering engine. I noticed that turning adblock and web developer off made the browser far more responsive (good) but you still get noticeable timeouts while loading the whole thing (bad). This can last up to 15 seconds or so. I notice that it actually seems to lag while doing the google-analytics thing at the bottom of the page. A similar bug cropped up a while ago on another page. A connection takes a while to establish (stuck in SYN_SENT maybe?) and the browser just starts chewing CPU like mad. Perhaps it's just using up CPU waiting in an inner loop in which case the bugreport is probably out there. Searching a bugzilla isn't exactly my idea of fun though.

Also, the new thingie (that I've only so far seen in the windows version) where you open N tabs where N>some_number and firefox pops up a warning that this might slow the browser down is really annoying. If it slows the browser down I'll notice, mmkay?
