    I just love firefox but only thing I hate is amount of addons tend to increase firefox response time. Nice article abhishek, never forget to remove your history.

    What’s the problem? I have about 15 addons and tons of bookmarks, Firefox is almost as fast as Chrome and the speed tradeoff isn’t worth Chrome’s lack of features and customization. Since Firefox is completely open-source I can change almost anything. I think you guys need to upgrade your RAM or something.
