Task Manager for Firefox processes

Post by morganism » Mon Sep 12, 2016 9:23 pm

Looks like a good plugin, but don't know about trust.

"The Task Manager interface for Firefox opens in a new window when you click on it. The information it displays list the type of task (e.g. web page or add-on), a description which usually is a name or title, memory use, process ID and information, cpu and system utilization and P.Memory.

Please note that the ending of processes is limited to web pages currently. The "kill process" button remains inactive if you select system or add-on tasks in the listing."

I'm curious, what does this offer that the normal system task managers can't or don't?

It sounds like it can display and control individual pages and extensions.
Religion is not the opium of the masses. Daily life is the opium of the masses.

True religion, which dares to acknowledge death and challenge the way we live, is an attempt to wake up.
