    I don't understand. Why they improved javascript proccesing? Shouldn't be already as improved as firefox's since they use the same engine?

    I'm just waiting for it to reach Gentoo's portage tree. I hope they won't inherit all downsides of FF. Once FF was meant to be a browser part only, taken out of the Mozilla suite, people said Moz. was bloated. But I guess over time FF is now bloated while I found the pure browser part of SM to be quite ok.

    Why is FF bloated? I admit you can bloat him by adding thousands of add-ons. But by default why?

    Because it takes a huge amount of RAM, crashes often, leaks memory?

    Firefox is bloated, but unfortunately it's the only browser for Linux that doesn't totally suck. We're stuck with it

    Opera's not that bad, either.
