Submission + - How Chrome gains market share (salsitasoft.com)

kangsterizer writes: Yesterday one of my colleagues started grumbling and swearing even more vociferously than usual. He had installed Adobe Flash in Firefox in order to test some changes to our website and claimed that Google Chrome had been installed as well.

“Impossible,” I said. “Remember Google’s motto is Don’t Be Evil. They wouldn’t do anything as sneaky as that.”

Submission + - Firefox outperform Chrome with many tabs open (gregor-wagner.com) 1

kangsterizer writes: Mozilla Firefox has been listening to recent memory complains, and as a side effect tested the browser's scalability to the extreme with memshrink's improvements. The results are shocking:

For 150 tabs open using the test script, Firefox nightly takes 6 min 14 on the test system, uses 2GB and stays responsive.

For the same test, Chrome takes 28 min 55 and is unusable during loading.

An optimized version of the script has been made for Chrome as an attempt to work-around Chrome's limitations and got an improved loading time of 27 min 58, while using 5GB of memory. Outch.
