Evening Metaverse

I'll second (third) that Firefox Quantum suggestion, been using it for about two weeks now and I'm very happy with it. Coming from Chrome after a few years, it's nice to get back to the Mozilla ecosystem. I originally dropped it because of the excessive RAM usage and Chrome had the added spice of being logged in to my Google account, which I could access on my phone as well. Now with FF Sync, I can do the same thing and have been. Chrome is just way too resource hungry anymore. And it's insistence on canning Flash and Java is a PITA. As long as you have them updated, I don't see why they can't be included. Just run a check to make sure you have the latest version and if not, insist on downloading it otherwise deactivate it, don't throw the baby out with the bath water, especially with Java.

Anyway, even with like five or six tabs open, Chrome was getting out of hand and when I've seen people have 50, 70, 100(!!!) freakin' tabs open at a time, I don't see how. I have 14gb of RAM and even when I had 20gb, it still ground my desktop to a crawl with more than 10 tabs open, especially if it was a resource intensive page. You people are nuts! Performance seems much better with FF Quantum now and I think I'll stick with it until Chrome steps up it's game. They have valid competition now, which was sorely needed...
