Don't agree... Firefox is a heavy beast on memory.
Ok so it's running CE but that would likely mean it is missing things firefox needs so would need a lot of extra bits to make it run.
CE is not really designed to run large applications like this so although the OS is designed to be light I feel CE is not going to give Firefox a benefit. If anything it may give it more problems that cause overheads.
Anyway disagree is you wish. I am sure RISC OS is lighter than CE (it fits in a much smaller footprint) although is likely missing some more modern developments CE may now have.
I really wasn't trying to start in in depth discussion or ask for people to pick holes in post after post about why I am wrong.
Just impressed with the speed of Desktop firefox on these modern, recently released, ARM processors. Am I wrong? Does this not show some of the power available? Not sure any Xscale up to 600Mhz would make a decent job of running a desktop version of firefox?
Most CE devices with 400Mhz xscales and a good GPU struggle to make Pocket IE or Opera Mobile run at an acceptable speed and it is designed to be small and light.
