Firefox is getting better but it still chokes with websites after being up for two hours or more. Use a site like OKCupid for a bit with multiple tabs, leave it open for some time, and you'll see exactly what I mean.
Have you tried https://addons.mozilla.org/en-US/fir...addons-memory/?

It is not an apples to apples comparison.

The apple to apple comparision is with the borwsers as they come out of the box; then you can compare reactivity, memory usage, cpu use and so on.
And, out of the box, chromium uses an excessive amount of ram, imho.
But now you have the option to set it to global click-to-play in the addons page (unlike a few releases ago).

Mobile browsers have to do some voodoo to try to find a good compromise and the result widely varies from device to device. On my Galaxy S3 it's exactly the opposite: FF works better with Phoronix than Chrome. Not only did Firefox choose font settings that make the main text readable just fine, the links in the sidebars are readable as wee but not in Chrome.

Work from incapable people is probably useless, and i'm certainly not going to call Michael "incapable"...
