Not really, was merely a test to see how often I open new tabs.
I just stopped closing tabs, and it took me around 3 weeks to get 3k tabs.

I did however once have a 4 year old tab on my old computer.

I dont fully remember what the tab was about, but I think it was a wikipedia article about something. Kinda recall it being something science related, not completely sure.

iirc, it was in a browser I very rarely used, causing me to not have any need to delete the tabs I had there.

Whenever I work with lots of tabs open, Firefox may start using a lot of CPU. But as soon as I check the Task Manager, it slooowly starts giving back the memory. Like the cat in this gif slowly closes the drawer. I thought some people might relate to this.

its a bit more lightweight, so it uses fewer resources as it buffers.

why is it exactly bad if it runs on google servers?

paranoid much? i myself like how i can sync my phone and tablet and pc without doing anything. love how it knows what i want with just typing 1st letter.

chrome is much safer thanks to running everything thru google servers...

they don't actually spy on every single user...


i like chrome because: safer than firefox, faster than firefox, looks clean like i said... faster and safer than other big browser

good, i'm happy that you enjoy all that functionality.

i'm against the NSA tapping wires and reading your emails for the same reason.
privacy.

it's my data and i don't like it being sent anywhere i don't want it to.

i highly doubt google's using data on individual users, but uses the data to improve their adcrap.. still doesn't mean i have to give away my data.

and yeah.. more secure? if you don't want people to touch your data, then you shouldn't be handing it out in the first place.

it's faster. let's stop there.

use adblocker, no personalized adcrap (which you can also turn off in google if you don't like that being sent anonymously)

more secure against viruses and malwares and pishing sites and so on.

the only real data it stores (heavily encypted) is on a cloud to sync your data thru different computers or platforms. so now dropbox is bad too?

I know why chrome does that. When it splits up the processes, if one tab crashes, all the others remain uneffected. Usually the crashes are due from plugins. Firefox keeps its tabs under one process, but it keeps its plugins in another process. Both are good systems with some different drawbacks.

Yeah, I gathered that, but FF rarely crashes either (and 90% of the time you can just recover all the tabs), and I found I just wasn't able to use chrome alongside any other serious software.

Also, chrome wouldn't shut down a lot of those processes. Pretty **** having only 3 or 4 tabs open but about 20 processes eating all of your memory

Also, **** google

The way the guy explained it is the same as the way you did, there is always overclocking if you need to in the future.
I'd prefer to be able to keep up as time marches on and this feature is just another way of doing so.
Making an awesome GPU and then locking it or disabling sectors in "the cheaper versions" kind of pisses me off though...

Right then, just remember you will probably need better cooling if you're going to Overclock, which is an extra expense. Liquid cooling if you want to stay safe.
Most high end GPUs are overclockable today (GTX 760 - 770 - 780, AMD R9 290 - 290x etc) or comes Pre-overclocked by the company (MSI 760 Lightning and such) and you always have the possibility to put them in SLI / Crossfire

(nVidea) SLI or (AMD) Crossfire are speciel sockets that allows you to have up to (i think) 3 GPUs working together in a single computer (it has to be the same GPUs though, i.e. 2x 770 or 3x Titans

You could always buy one of those tiny Liquid Cooling systems that only goes on the CPU / GPU.
Also, Cheap fans in large numbers can cool quite effectively (though might be noisy), i brought the temperature down dramatically by adding another 3-4 small fans and rearranging them for best possible air flow

I honestly think that Firefox it's faster than Chrome. However, Chrome looks cleaner and leaner than Firefox and makes my browsing experience more enjoyable because of that.

Also, firefox doesn't record everything you do if you tell it not to.

I really, really liked Opera back in Version 12. This new version 15 is ********, it basically became the same like Firefox and Chrome. Version 12 had it's flaws, like it wasn't supported by some sites but I really liked the sidebar and the additional features
