I have made the switch to Chrome on a more or less permanent basis. Firefox has become increasingly unstable in the last few days. I mean that literally, three days ago, it was fine.
Since then, whenever FF is running, my disk access approaches 100% of bandwidth (considering it’s an SSD on SATAIII, that’s scary). Firefox runs for about five minutes then crashes, taking anything using the disk with it.
I’ve created new profiles, removed add-ons, even uninstalled and reinstalled. Nothing. I also did a full system restore to last week, still nothing helped.
So, Chrome. Smaller, lighter, faster… better? I’ll have to get used to a new RSS reader and I’ll need to find out if Chrome has a few of the tools I actually used in Firefox, but so far so good. I’ll take a lower productivity if it saves my system.
Any questions or requests for posts?
