    Which is precisely why it should be avoided. IE is a malware magnet and promotes a non-standards-compliant internet with Microsoft as the gatekeeper. That's a Bad Thing.

    no my computer is pretty fast. ive just found that in the task manager, when my computer starts to slow down (which isnt very often), firefox is always the process that uses the most memory. dont get me wrong, i like firefox, but i was just wondering whether there was a better browser that didnt use as much memory. from what im seeing here though, most of u guys think firefox is the best

    What extensions are you using? Keep in-mind that many Firefox memory-leaks are actually the fault of poorly-coded extensions. You might want to try running without extensions for a while to see if that makes a difference.

    That said, Firefox's history and caching (so that use of the [Back] button is speedy) requires a lot of RAM, and it's only compounded the more tabs you have open. It's hard to track this in IE to compare as it's not associated properly in Task Manager (since that memory is lumped together in Windows' own memory use).

    Firefox hands down, so much faster, security, add-ons, and is the easiest browser to use.

    If Firefox runs slow, it's very easy to deplete the memory stored within the browser.

    So far I haven't been overly happy with ANY. They are all so EASY! Oh well the online play with GH III and SSBB is keeping me satisfied.

    I use IE, go on, laugh. But it does the job.
    I love you, Adam.
