After 8 years work, Firefox54 finally goes multiprocess.

Mozilla are claiming this to be the best Firefox yet, and that their multiprocess content tabs do not suck up as much ram as the Chrome browser.

Why go multiprocess content?

I hear the fine reader ask!

In theory this is more stable and if a tab crashes or slows to a hult, it won’t slow down the rest of your browsing experience, more importantly it won’t slow down your computer.

For this advantage there is however a little trade off, as each content tab will require its own memory slot using the Mozilla rendering engine. The company says the browser will use only four content processes by default, which they call “The sweet spot” for optimal viewing and performance.
