GT Distractions -- Completely Firefox'd

Guess you've seen the updates, and a few have already updated their browser -- yup, it's now v14.0.1

Now the fun begins, testing it out:

Believe it or not, if you open your Task manager ( that's Shift+CTRL+Esc on your keypads ) the memory looks very nice to start with -- on v13.0.1 I'd be getting roughly 500-600mb reading off my memory ( no video or flash running in the other tabs ) :shock:

But now -- even with a couple of Youtube channel up, 4 Blogs opened, the main Yahoo news page, I'm grabbing roughly 400-435mb consumption on memory! ( yes, I know the Flash plug-ins are now running at roughly 20-35mb, but it disappears once the video's done -- the old v13.0.1 retained the Flash Plug-ins, thus a wasteful 12-25mb in the memory in my opinion )

How about here? Believe it or not, noticed a faster transition of the pages -- very fast! Just got an ad -- before, there'd be a quick few seconds ( 2-3seconds ) lag before the "click the Cat" image message appears -- now, not anymore! Refreshing pages even feel better.

How about the Task windows? Clicking the links to open the pages to find the data needed is smooth and crisp, no lagging :D I love this browser when clicking for ads

Tested it out on the Games section -- loading a game ( tried a couple ) is better and smooth -- and like when I noticed the Youtube behavior, after a few minutes after closing the game, the Flash plug-ins disappear! Yes, this new version of Firefox seemed to have cleared that annoying issue of memory mismanagement :thumbup:

Now, it's even more compatible for Mac users

:geek: It has been hours after the update of v14.0.1 -- yet the memory consumption is still hovering between 450mb-490mb ( compared to 700-825mb on v13.0.1 )

And that's after checking Tumblr sites ( high image contents ), more Youtube videos and blogs!

:idea: To see that the Flash plug-ins really disappear, after you check a Youtube video, close the tab the video is placed, open a blank tab and pull up the Task Manager screen -- in a few minutes, the Flash plug-in processes really disappear! :mrgreen:

The address bar auto-completes : Waiting for this feature for a loooooooooong time :mrgreen:

The memory management is very impressive ;)
And those two Flash Player . exes go off of my RAM after they were used : Love this feature too; v13.0.1 retains it all along :roll:

There's a new Adobe Flash update being released for download in tune with the new Firefox update -- though it'll be best to wait for a substantial one; this new updated download of Flash, v11.4.400.231 -- is a Beta version!

Don't install it just yet -- best to hold on to the current version til Adobe fixes all the kinks and junk from the last on ( especially that Protect Mode ) ;)

Although the two exes in RAM and medium_frequent firefox_off_focus create noise, they don't put me at the hell's gate :lol:
I would like to wait for some time when the Adobe continues working on this latest version.

Have you ever tried Firefox Beta?

The v15 Night build? Heard its still has an issue on focusing ( checked their Mozilla Forums ) -- and since it's also a Beta build, I'll pass installing it til there's a green light on the updater :thumbup:

:shock: Currently testing it on the ClixGrid -- not only the two Flash plugins appear, also the 'unwanted' plugin-container.exe pops into view

But wait... just noticed -- after a few minutes, when the ClixGrid windows has been verified and closed, the once combined 25-32mb consumption on the Flash plug-ins dropped to 7-8.5mb in seconds :D

Nice! I truly I love the new memory management process of this FF version!
