  1. The software nowadays becomes bigger and bigger and use more and more memory, I remember the first firefox version I used only about 7M, but now….
    It’s a bad news for the users like me who still uses old computer. Maybe I should use some other browsers which are small but full of build-in features. I’m not a Plugin lovers, some build-in features are enough. I plan to try Avant browser or chrome till now.
