Hasn't it always been that there has usually been something one could do
to improve browsing experience, be it to throw a faster Internet
connection at the system, or improve the speed of the processor, or
increase the amount of memory, or sometimes all three?
Judging from the direction Mozilla is going with the internals of
Firefox, I think most users will see an improvement in responsiveness,
even those who decide to have just one rendering process (minimum memory
usage) because Mozilla plans to have tasks required to render a page
broken up to where some parallel activity could take place and, even
when the parallel activity is in the same process, by using multiple
active threads for rendering a page, it allows the use of multiple
processor cores to work on different parts of the rendering at the same
time. And that would be, for most us us, without having to buy new
hardware. That's one of the reasons why I am looking forward to see what
comes in Firefox 57.
