I just wrote a post. Well, almost. About three or four paragraphs in, I wanted to check something in another tab. BAM – Firefox decides to stop responding. Oh yeah, it freezes up spectacularly. There’s absolutely no indication why, and it just keeps beeping everytime I try to click on anything. So much for that post.
Firefox has been getting worse and worse lately. It’s using too much memory and not unloading tabs even after they are closed. It freezes at the worst possible times, and crashes almost randomly. I just uninstalled all of my extensions, but what’s the point of an extensible browser if you can’t actually install any plugins?
I’m not giving up just yet, but I’m getting pretty sick of this. I’m beginning to regret recommending people to switch lately. Maybe it’s time to give some other alternatives a try.
