[citation][nom]razor512[/nom]They need to stop all current development and focus on making a multithreaded web browser. (PS the browser in the HP touchpad can use both cores to load a single web page)Why cant firefox make their browser multithreaded.If they want to improve their benchmarks then make the browser multithreaded and get a nice 300-500% performance boost.Google chrome is half way there to being multithreaded, each tab has it's own thread and the browser distributes the tabs equally across the CPU cores.(want to test, in google chrome, open a large number to tabs very quickly, chrome will load each core to 100% and multiple tabs will load faster, but do the same on firefox and only 1 core will hit 100% and the browser will load much slower)I like firefox because of the extensions and UI, but I don't like how outdated the browser engine is becoming.[/citation]
ever open a web page, and its so crap that it kills your browser? back when i was still running a p4, i had that kind of crap happen all the time. do i want an Internet browser to run 4 cores just so one douche can make a web page that everyone links to that will slow your computer to sub snail speed?
here is a fact, web browsers DO NOT need to be threaded... 1 core is more than enough.
chromes approach, while multi core... kind of, isolates pages, and if one dies it doesn't take the system with it, at the expense of being retardedly resource dependent. other browsers... firefox namely, would love to not be resource heavy, because that and extensions are the main reason to use it, and most people can live without extensions.
