Today I was being frustrated by Firefox. It was logy and slow. Loading pages into tabs took forever to finish loading, especially if there were images on the pages (considering I was reading comics that are virtually all image…). So I decided to try and experiment. I knew that the Firefox add-ons increased the time it took to load the program. It was a simple extrapolation to the add-ons making general page loading longer. So I went in and took out all the add-ons that weren’t compatible with the current version and the bits and pieces that I don’t use.
Voila! So far so good. It takes a whole lot less time to load pages. I haven’t done y second folder which contains photo heavy sites like Cute Overload but it loaded Pioneer Woman quickly, and she’s got a very photo heavy site.
Everything is faster, including typing. I’m so clever.
Edited to add that this new, sleeker Firefox without all the extraneous add-ons is like working with a jet after flying a Sopwith Camel.
