>Firefox 9 is 7 times faster and uses half the memory that Firefox 3.6

Posted by wayer in Uncategorized


Since its launch in January 2010, version 3.6 of Mozilla’s popular Firefox browser, has become one of the most long-lived versions when supported by Mozilla, version3.6.25 being released just three days ago the most recent and apparently forcingusers will continue to continue to update Mozilla.This resistance to change responds to the policy change and Mozilla launches its controversial fast scheme introduced since the release of Firefox 4.0 earlier thisyear, and that often causes many of the existing plug-ins and, no longer work in the new version of the browser. Factor that is frowned upon by some users, and especially by the business sector.Mozilla summarized in a chart all the progress that has enjoyed your browser due to its rapid release schedules in just 1 year, where starting with Firefox 4.0, up to the current Firefox 9.0.1, which is 7 times the performance of “old” Firefox 3.6 (and 32times that of the original Firefox 1.0), plus half the memory consuming, and announcing new features such as synchronization or arrival of new platforms such asAndroid.

Although I must point out that since the launch of Firefox 7, which cut memory usageconsiderablywe have seen little improvement in the following versionsAlthoughFirefox 10, which will be released next year looks promising.

Who knows what new developments we see in future versions of Firefox over 2012, but having tried the latest nightly version of Firefox 12, I see no significant changescompared to Firefox 10, so I assume we’ll have to wait until 13 for Firefox notice anysignificant change. We will keep you informed.
