New Firefox Health Report to Aid Performance

Filed under
Moz/FF

Users have complained about the performance of Firefox for years and although each release promises better resource management, users still end up complaining. Now a new feature will help users and developers pinpoint the reasons Firefox may not be as peppy as it should be.

Mitchell Baker blogged about the new Firefox feature today saying,

"Have you ever sat down with someone else's computer and wondered why a particular piece of software seems to perform so much better (or worse)? Ever wonder what people do to tune the performance of their software? Ever wish you had more information to understand your specific experience - why something stopped working, why something got slower, what you did to make a piece of software feel new and fast again?"
