    Chrome eats more power, becose it can properly utilize all cpu core in the system, due to the better multiprocessing/multithreading, and the far better quality of the code. Firefox only can run plugins an a different process, so complitely lacks this capability, wich is very giant design flaw in 2011.

      Mozilla's Electrolysis project is tackling this issue. I think Electrolysis is coming to Firefox in Firefox 7 or Firefox 8 - I couldn't find the relevant web page.

        OK, it looks like Electrolysis (also known as e10s) will be coming to Firefox later than I thought. From the Mozilla Platform Meeting Minutes: 2011-08-16:

        Firefox Development
        • Ongoing e10s work:

        * e10s-compat build time flag has browser standing up, but no progress events
        * felipe is working on having the WPL listeners work (bug 666801)
        * coming week we’re going to be filing some additional bugs and directing fx-team’s full attention to them (bug fxe10s)
        Note that the build-time switch is actually –enable-e10s-compat

          If anyone is interested, the Mozilla QA team posted the following on Sunday, 21 August 2011:

          We’ll be having a testday next Friday for Firefox 7 Beta. This is an excellent opportunity to start getting involved for newcomers and experts alike. Stay tuned as details will be posted very shortly.
          and:

          If you’d like to help us test or simply learn what is involved with testing Firefox, come join us in #qa and ask us how you can help with Firefox 7, 8, or 9.
