Hmm over here (Windows) Firefox takes 15 seconds to load sometimes, whereas like you say Chrome is never more than a second.

Wow, that's terrible. What version are you using?

Firefox 3.6.13 on Windows 7

Took 7 seconds to start just now to just to check that. I have the following Addons (Firebug, Freecorder, Greasemonkey, Java, Screengrab, Selenium, Web Developer, Zend Studio Toolbar).

Wow, I've never had Firefox take more than 1-2 sec to load.. ever. Even with all those extensions installed, sans Selenium + Freecorder.

This included my days over Windows XP, Windows Vista, Windows 7, Mac OS 10.+, Ubuntu *

I would have never been able to justify using a browser that takes 7 seconds to load.

I just tested it on my Windows 7 partition. Both Firefox (4b12) and Chromium (nightly build 11.0.669.0) took the same amount of time to load: under one second. Funny, Firefox is 11MB, while Chromium is 19MB :roll: .

Keep in mind, I'm running on an SSD.

I really like what Firefox has done with version 4. I recommend you ditch 3.6 (at least for regular browsing), and download the latest. I don't use (so called) "stable" releases anymore :D .

Its taking me 4 seconds to "warm start" firefox, and chrome is way under 0.5 seconds. I also find chrome a lot more responsive, if my computer is hanging I can press control+l and type in the URL box before my cursor is even there. In firefox sometimes if the computer is going slow it will lag and the keys get sent to the wrong focus, etc. When I ran solid state it wasn't a problem like Jonah says, but I don't use solid state for the main OS drive because solid states are too slow for certain stuff, like page files & installing programs, & big file transfers.
