    Every time they release a new version, I see "performance improvements". The truth is that firefox performance sucks, it feels slow*, runs slow and crashes often.

    *On a Dual Core 3Ghz processor with 4GB of RAM.

    Same here, on a midrange SNB Laptop, 4GB. Firefox feels slower with each release. Example? Filling Text edits with some paragraphs -> selecting can take up to 2 seconds (here), completely freezing the browser. Did not experience this with <19.x (currently running 21.0).

    Both Firefox and Chrome work great on my dual core.

    Firefox (21) doesn’t crash often at all here, but it does crash on some game/physics JS engines demos.

    I have to agree that the most annoying “feature” of FF is its mono-threaded design causing an unresponsive UI during page loading.

    Firefox is working just fine here on an i5 Sandy Bridge, dualcore + HT, 4GB of RAM. No crashes, no hangs, no choppiness, nothing -- and thats with a lot of addons installed.

    Those of you having problems... bug in FOSS drivers (if youre using them)? Corrupted profile? Something else hogging CPU/GPU? Bad combination of addons?

    It's most definitely not "mono-threaded", take a look at all the threads it uses (tip: threads don't appear as processes).

    Same here, I can't say I notice any real performance difference (though that doesn't mean there isn't any), Chrome does use more RAM for me though, but not by any huge amount.

    From a user standpoint I can't really recommend one over the other, I find myself using Firefox as my primary browser more out of habit than anything else.
