    Anyone running firefox 3.6.8(2) will notice if they look in their task manager
    There is a new process running "plugin-container.exe". what's that all about?
    have you seen how much memory it eats?
    I'm running firefox 3.6.8(2) I've been an avid firefox fan since they took on IE
    but WTF happened? It's become an overbloated memory eater that crashes without reason.
    I can't do without firefox, Having,
    No script,
    foxyproxy,
    seoquake,
    greasmonkey,
    seo tools,
    alexa sparky,
    firebug
    google analytics watcher,
    quicksearch,
    contribute toolbar,
    hyper toolbar,
    seo book toolbar,
    web developer toolbar,
    skip screen,
    and downloadhelper installed I think that some of these plugins may be
    incompatible with one another.
    Everytime firefox crashes It gives this plugin-container.exe as the error.
    So I looked it up, And guess what? Plugin-container.exe is supposed to stop
    firefox crashing when a plugin crashes. Excuse me Duhhhhhh! it's the container that is causing the crashes.
    It isolates flash inside the browser??????
    I didn't ask for that, perhaps I should of read the EULA everyone does don't they.
    Shit! Mozzilla, sort it out, I can't IM without you.

    Never ever run the latest version of Firefox when it is still new, they always suck.

    Yes I agree, I have been using chrome for over a year and I enjoy it more than firefox. I still have firefox downloaded for any Seo plugins that have not made their way over to chrome yet.

    I sympathize - firefox is the only real seo option but it is still unstable.

    The worst thing is that they got rid of the "properties" in the right click menu - so you can't instantly check for nofollow on a link!

    There is a plugin to fix this but still... come on!

I do not know for sure if google monitors stuff i do on my pc but i will never install google chrome ,toolbar or talk on any machine i use for blackhat stuff.

    Chrome lol.

    Do you have any idea how often Chome communicates back to Google, even when its not turned on.

    Not to mention if you are doing blackhat SEO you certainly don't want to be doing it with Chrome.

    Firefox when you're doing SEO, Sarari when you're not.

    don't you people know safari's the fastest browser in the world, all the talk about chrome being the fastest is just google being behind it and promoting it, period.

    he doesnt he is just a noob talking out of his mouth. Try monitoring your http requests or your connections and see if chrome makes a connection to any suspicious IP then come here and talk.



    After all the only way to find out if your statement is true is by sniffing your own packets.

    do you have a link cause the original site leads to a rapidshare site that had the file removed.

    Yeah I've upgraded to FF 3.6 and suddenly youtube videos take a huge delay to run while CPU is 100% busy, etc etc.

    So I guess now its THEIR time to drop the ball.

    Really, some people should learn how to STOP and do NOT try to fix something that aint broke...

    I have been using Safari for a while now and it's great. I recommend it to everyone.
