[quote=kay] I used Firefox for many years. Something like since 1998 or so, when I found out about it. That sleek little Firefox is long gone. It became bloaty and huge. I used it because it was lightweight and FAST. Originally I had just stuck with the newest version that had everything I liked about it (Version 2), but with my systems running Windows 7 x64, that version simply didn't work. I upgraded to version 3, and saw a ton of issues with it hogging CPU and the page doing this "I'm going to grey out now, while your CPU spins to catch up to me, and there's not a damn thing you can do about it!!!" Figuring it was just that version 3 was too old to handle my 50-open-tabs, I switched to version 10. Same thing. I dealt with it for a good long time, but when I heard someone say it was a known problem, I gave up. I did a google search for "lightweight web browser windows", and K-melon was at the top of the list. I just downloaded it, and I like what I see so far. I'm very picky about how my browser looks and acts. I HATE the look of the new Firefox (worst thing they've ever done) though you can bring it back close to the old style, I dislike Chrome's look and distrust that they aren't saving everything I do (much like gmail / google does), and IE having the right-click "New Tab" option at the bottom and the "Close Tab" at the top, means I close tabs by accident way too often. I stopped by this forum to see how I can import my bookmarks from Firefox - it only seems to want to automagically import from IE... figured I'd put in my .02c while I was here. :) It might "do everything that FF can do" functionally, but I'm hoping it does it without being a CPU hog. :)[/quote]
