    I'm not entirely sure but I think FF is now the most CPU-heavy browser, while Chrome is the most RAM heavy.
    I read some benchmark results too confirming that.. but I always had "a feeling" (didn't do any real monitoring) that chrome/chromium was using less RAM. Maybe is it just because of the ""sandboxing thingy""? I gave Firefox a try several times.. it feels complete, but TOO complete. Would be nice to have a stripped-down version of FF with everything else available through the Addons.
    Icecat probably will do, except someone pointed out it being based on a pretty old version of FF. Probably I should just stick with Chromium, it feels more convenient especcially if you use Google Hangouts. Let's not forget Midori...

    Is it firefox (gecko) reinventing it self adding sandboxing? ..forgot the project name...

      If you googled a bit, you would've stumbled on this, it's like the third url that's offered:

      Yes, I stumbled upon it ... notice that you cannot DISABLE shortcuts, just change them. Also the majority of comments I saw is that the add-on is actually pretty crap. So I'd have to remap new window to something else. Also installing extensions for anything that I want is not what I call usable (decent tab management, mouse gestures etc ...).

        Electrolysis or e10s for short. They've had support for a chrome/content process split in nightly builds for quite a while (to the point where there's an "Open new non-e10s window" option in the menu) and I just saw a blog post on Planet Mozilla a day or two ago about how they added Chrome-like process-per-extension support to the Firefox nightly builds and hoooked it up to AreWeE10SYet.com.

        The #1 issue with getting Firefox reworked is doing it without breaking Firefox's extension ecosystem, which has the pros and cons of being based on an API that allows extensions to "just reach in and fiddle with anything you want" and a team of manual submission auditors at addons.mozilla.org. (The advantage compared to Chrome is that there are a lot of addons which are flat-out impossible in Chrome's restricted extension API, even after Google has kept adding new APIs to close the gap. Chrome's approach sort of has a chilling effect on innovation in that sense.)

          In that case, why not try an extension that allows you to enable a "single-window browsing mode"? It's been a while, but if Tab Mix Plus is still around, it'd probably fit your needs.

          As for the complaint about installing extensions, welcome to a world where Firefox is trying to please a world complaining about it being bloated and slow. (eg. They removed the RSS icon from the address bar specifically because heatmap visualization of UI studies via the Test Pilot extension showed that maybe 1% of people used it.)
