FireFox has some kind of a memory leak, so I switched to something called K-Meleon (http://kmeleon.sourceforge.net/). So far, I love it, a LOT faster than FF, IE7 or Opera :thumbsup

I do hope they fix ff :( the extensions make it worthwhile when I'm poking around ad-infested sites.

what are you guys using for a browser? Anybody else not using one of the 'big three'?

Safari 4 is significantly faster than FF but those extensions are just too darn useful so it's FF 3.5b4 for me still.

thanks, this helped a fair bit (tho not anywhere near as fast as k-meleon)

how about safari on PC? I heard its crap (unlike the mac version).

anybody try chrome?

I've been trying K-Meleon out, ever since-Five brought it to my attention and have to say that it has supplanted Firefox as the main browser - much, much faster. Shame about the lack of extensions (particularly dta), but you can't have everything!

great man, I'm glad its working out for you :thumbsup

I did manage to get adblock plus and flashblock working in k-meleon, which is great!

too bad about DTA... some alternative suggestions over here (sorry bit of an old thread):
http://kmeleon.sourceforge.net/forum/read.php?4,71875

mostly just search the extension name, space bar, k-meleon in google and results come up quick! (esp if you're using k-meleon instead of ff ;) ).
