I thought the Ad Block was interesting because it affected Firefox much more than the other browsers they tested. Firefox seemed to be the biggest resource hog also. I don't notice any slowdown with Sophos on my Hacintosh but I am using an SSD and a 4 core cpu at 3.45ghz. I did a clean install of Mavericks on it a few weeks ago and its like going back to floppies booting of a regular hard drive now. Damn thing boots up in about 10 seconds now. I just updated to 10.9.3 today and it seems they fixed the slow wi-fi issue that some people like me were having from 10.9.2. I still like Snow Leopard best overall for responsiveness etc though.

Using AdBlock Plus may be what’s slowing your Firefox browsing session to a crawl

Yes Chrome is definitely faster at rendering websites etc. But the killer for me was that after the last update when I watch streaming video on Hulu the audio is no longer synced with the video. Safari and Firefox its fine and it used to be fine with Chrome. I tried reinstalling the latest version of Chrome from dead scratch, deleted its prefs and all and it still does it, This is on 10.8.2 Mavericks. That and Chrome still has the back button problem here at RP.
And the update before that broke Silverlight so no Netlix. That was fixed with the last update but now the Hulu streams are messed up.

not sure what's up with those browsers on these days but Chrome is acting strangely on windows 8.1 , not loading pages once in a while,  Firefox is useless if you need to zoom pages and use larger fonts, it's all distorted .  So now  I'm using OPERA and it work VERY well.  Somewhat like Chrome without the annoyances and the bugs.

I've just tried PaleMoon 64 bits and it seem to load pages faster than Firefox,  I use Waterfox 64 bits very often.

Really liking this....http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Pale_Moon_%28web_browser%29
I have been using Pale Moon for about a month...It is made for Firefox and solved an issue I was having with Google...It seems to have improved the overall speed of browsing. YMMV.

I've been using that for years on different FF builds from ~ 9.0 -27 and have never had any problems with it at all.
