>>52266467 You should get the Speed Tweaks addon, but waterfox was already faster than Chrome for me.
I stopped using Waterfox though because it causes a video memory leak if I play a video game while having a video or some music streaming. it's fucking weird I was so scared my RAM or something was fucked. Waterfox is made by some kid btw.
>>52266467 Uninstall Waterfox and install 64-bit Firefox with e10s (aka multi-process mode). Waterfox is merely an unofficial 64-bit build of Firefox, and now that an official bild is out, it's just obsolete. I'm using latest Dev Edition, most extensions are still working perfectly. Migrated from Waterfox, which did lag a lot.
>>52266505 There's no discernible difference unless, again, you're looking at those tab animations like a retard. Whatever difference is in milliseconds, is not something you can see for yourself and you need benchmarks to measure it. Enjoy your botnet.
>>52266485 There's a difference between website rendering speed and general speed (i.e. sartup time, responsiveness etc.), which is where all firefox forks suck badly. On all of my 3 systems chrome launches immediately, whereas firefox takes a while.
>>52266588 >(i.e. sartup time, Google adds a service to windows (or whateve OS) startup to make it seems like it's loading faster, when it's actually making your computer start up slower, consuming resources and feeding usage data to google. It doesn't go away when you uninstall chrome. > responsiveness etc. Again, placebo effect from having those shitty tab animations and not something useful or relevant at all. If anything, it makes tabs open a split second slower.
>>52266588 There is no noticeable speed difference on equal terms, and by equal terms I mean same extensions and same OS. The problem is that Firefox has good extensions whereas Chrome doesn't, and that causes your speed difference. To be fair, pre-e10s Firefox is rather slow indeed.
And yeah, preloading Chrome into RAM is cheating. If Firefox added itself to autoruns there'd be no difference either.
