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.

It used to be fun to have a desktop that looks different, behaves differently than the normal. During the earlier years in college while I was trying to find out more about Linux, using KDE marked me as a Linux expert. I was powered with the right syntax of mount command to mount the windows partitions and the xmms-mp3 rpm. I spent most of my time in the terminal.
