 Browsers and site performance, IE v7 and Firefox v2

I recently reloaded my internet facing system and tried to just use one browser to conserve space on the C:/ drive. The problem was that the more I used this site with IE v7, the slower it ran. I continued to determine if the problem would go away without intervention and to determine just how bad it would get. Well, it got bad. It was taking a full minute to display a single page after selecting a forum link.

I just loaded Firefox v2 and things are moving along nicely. Has anyone else had this experience?

It's loading ok, but there is a slight delay when typing and when using the scroll wheel on my mouse. I use Firefox, but thought I'd try it with IE7 and I am seeing a slight delay.

I'm doing this reply with Firefox and the delay is no where as noticeable as it was in IE. I would stick with Firefox if I was you.

I wouldn't be surprised. Compared to Firefox, Internet Explorer looks like an inexperienced, cheap browser that you would find only by clicking spam banners.

So very, very true....All Microsoft did with IE7 was imitate Firefox's tabbed browsing...Other than that, it's still a hunk of junk...

In my experience, Firefox blows IE's doors off. I use it exclusively.

I always use Firefox, IE 7 is a dog. I used it for a week and it is a slower rip-off of Firefox.

Both FF and IE7 have memory leaks but IE7's is much nastier. IE7 is also using the Phishing filter which also slightly degrades performance but it can be disabled.

All in all FF has less overhead and is thus leaner and quicker but it's still an IE world out there...

I've actually experienced problems with FF not loading all the graphics from FL and tried it in IE7 and it work OK but that's the exception not the rule. FF and IE7 just handle their cache differently.

Personally I am 90% FF but as I mentioned there are some situations that you have to use IE with.

And for those, I have a plug-in for Firefox that can load pages with the IE engine, but do it in a Firefox tab.

IE Tab.

Sorry I never saw this until now. I never looked at this forum, because there's no Falcons stuff up here. I just happened to be doing some "spring cleaning", and noticed this thread with the unanswered question to me in it.
