Firefox Feeling Lighter?

Is Chrome getting heavier, or is Firefox getting lighter?

It doesn’t seem like Google Chrome is any heavier than it used to be, but Firefox seems a lot lighter on its feet these days.  Maybe it’s the Vacuum Places add-on or maybe it’s the latest software updates.  Either way, I no longer start Chrome to be fast.

These days, Chrome is my JavaScript enabled, non-ad blocking browser (with cookies set to delete on browser close) and Firefox is my NoScript, ads blocked, fully customized and tricked out browser.

Oh, and Firefox is my business browser and serious browser mostly because although there is finally a PDF viewer in ChromeGoogle Chrome STILL does not have a Print Preview function.  I guess Googlers don’t believe in hard copy.  I copy and paste URLs from Chrome to Firefox all the time in order to get a look at how many pages I need to print in order to get just the article to print and not the 11 pages of comments with it.  Oh, and the percentage size print feature (fully integrated into the print preview functionality) is GOLD.  I love using print preview to see that a print out will be one page and two lines on the second page, then click 80% and get the whole thing on a very readable single page.

Have a nice Wednesday.
