Stepping back in to Firefox

The last week or so I have found myself spending much more time in Firefox than Chrome. In fact, not only am I writing this post inside a Firefox tab, but I'm no longer using Chrome, except to refer to tabs I've saved in the past.

I've left Chrome for one reason only: Firefox restores much more easily when recovering from sleep mode on OSX. When I restart my Octocore desktop machine from sleep, Chrome can sometimes take up to a minute to become responsive, maybe more,  Firefox, just a few seconds. Because I rely on putting my machine to sleep on a regular basis, this turns in to real time lost.

Sure, I miss Chrome's deft tab handling. But not so much as to give up so much of my time.
