Firefox is Garbage?

I never thought I would read anything that claimed Firefox is garbage.  NinjaPirate gives us a list of 6 reasons why we should uninstall it.

The first is his screenshot of Firefox using over 200 Megs of RAM.  That’s a lot.  Of course, currently mine is using less, about 92 Megs of RAM, which is still a lot, but less than NinjaPirate.

One reason he gives is that whenever he looks at (some particularly disgusting kind of) porn online in Firefox he feels guilty.  Is feeling guilty for looking at porn Firefox’s fault?  If you feel guilty doing it, that’s because you think it’s wrong and do it anyway.  That’s your own fault.

He’s right about the name though.  Firefox is a really, really dumb name.  I feel stupid every time I say I use Firefox.  Can’t we come up for a better name for it, like Opera or Lynx?  Oh wait…

    yep it is total garbage.. firefox makes an entire machine slow (i’ve optimized what can be optimized for speed as well)… i’ve got firefox running in X11 (linux slackware) on a 2GHZ machine w/ 1 gb ram.. and IE 6 running on a P3 (yes, pentium 3!) 1ghz w/ 512 mb ram and it doesn’t choke up etc while rendering pages / scripts / etc like firefox…

    dont forget.. firefox is just glorified NETSCAPE NAVIGATOR trash… i’m not PRO-microsoft by any stretch, but IE6 (and NOT IE 7 or 8 or anything further than 6), is decent…

  3. Firefox is absolute pile of dung. Not least since the recent introduction of “plugin container” process hogging just as much memory as Firefox. My doesn’t come close to using 200Mb – on average it uses 350Mb of RAM!!
    And that is also with plugins disabled.

    the history stored in a database engine coming to a grinding halt when you want to type a url, image loading locks the FF process completely, and it takes about 10 minutes to start.
