Tech Friday: Giving Mozilla Aurora 7 browser a try

Posted By on July 8, 2011

I’ve been somewhat disappointed with my memory hogging Mozilla Firefox 5 browser install (as I have with the last couple mozillaauroraversions) so decided to go out of my comfort zone to give their Aurora 7 browser (pre-beta) a try. Supposedly it will be faster to load and a much better memory manager for most users of the current release of Firefox. So far so good, although I’ve only been using it for a day. If you have mandatory add-ons, you might want to wait, otherwise give it a try and let me know if you see an improvement?

Mozilla said in a blog post announcing the release will result in 30 percent less memory use "for many users".
