What browser, if any, are CPU friendly. The current edition of Mozilla Firefox is tapping my memory; firefox,exe, is sucking 60% by itself. I do have a few tabs open, but I don't think should be that drained?

 

It is a 32 bit Windows 7 Pro; I am running some back ground applications, like Secunia, but should that be an issue? I have an extra language keyboard keyed up; does that matter?

 

I just figured there should be a browser  that isn't such a drain? If they are, I will start cutting somewhere else. It is a laptop & I think I have as much memory it can handle. Though it is 4 GB RAM, it only uses 3.75 GB.

 

I just can't believe there isn't another browser out there, that doesn't drag so much.

Condobloke,

Thanks for the link. I went ahead & reset Mozilla Firefox, after reading many articles that stated that Mozilla is among the most effiecient browsers. I figured that there might be something that the browser was hung up on, spinning its wheels to run whatever it was, it was trying to do? I have pinned to the task bar, 'Resource Monitor' & up to the point of the reset, it was running in the 60% or more for Mozilla, for the total portion of CPU. That meant with all the other applications, it was running at a 80% or more total.

 

Right now, after resetting, I am using less than a total of 40%. I can only assume that people not knoing what is dragging down their CPU/memory, will be pulling hair out to find the drain.

 

Thanks again.
