Make sure that browser.enable.bitching.moaning.and.complaining.on.forums is set to true.
Let my desire and hope surpass my expectations;
And give me the strength to persevere through doubt.
Grant me the wisdom to exceed my bounds.
Let my eyes always see through the dream fog of childhood,
so that every moment may be treasured.

Can't say I disagree. I shop around a bit but I just use Firefox. No reason to complain about Chrome or whatever. It all works. :)

All this talk about Firefox/Iceweasel memory usage... Have you guys EVER counted Chrome with all its processes?
It uses WAY more than anything else out there (including Opera which is a memory hog).
But both Opera and Chrome run well on the computers i used, the memory usage is an issue only if you have extremely low memory. My wife used a laptop with 512 mb ram and she managed to routinely open 80-100 tabs on Chrome and it did not crash (well a few tabs, but a simple refresh brought them back).
I use Opera (the alpha/beta "-next" version) on my desktop and i run it for days (sometimes a week or more) without crashing. It does get to use 600-700 MB RAM but it doesnt slows down. I routinely use Dragonfly for web development on it.
I occasionally use Seamonkey (thats the Netscape project continued, using the latest Firefox+Thunderbirds engines) and it has an amazing memory management - it doesnt get over 300 MB after hours of usage, and i have 3 mail accounts configured in it, with 20-30000 mails, lightning, google-sync extensions.
