lol I normally use IE. But when i'm at work I mostly use firefox. There are some things that will only work in firefox or IE. For example, Microsoft RemoteAPP only works through IE or Aruba Networks Airwave doesn't display properly in IE, but it does in Firefox.
Hey Guys, i've noticed an issue lately...
I had been blaming Firefox for just being slow... but today I had some slowness in firefox with multiple tabs open, and when I closed the HotHardware tab... everything picked back up.
I re-opened tabs and was able to recreate the slowness over time, and tried closing tabs for other website, but it didn't fix the slowness; only when I close HH does it speed back up.
There appears to be some sort of a memory leak occurring, and I think it is being caused by the ads...
I also accept that it is possible, the problem is just with the computer i'm on. But I am curious if other users have experienced this?
I'll continue monitoring and testing... might even try to get a good packet capture to pin this down...

I am curious what HTPC setups members of the forum are running and their intended use.
I have used Plex, WDTV-Live, Nexus Player, Minix Neo and other Android Mini-PC devices. In addition I use various Ro[censored] and Smart TV apps built into the Vizio tvs. And of course Windows Media Center. But for the most part it seems like I need to teach everyone which HDMI input is used for what and I am hoping someone can give me some pointers on which platform I should consider that can give me an all-in-one experience for local files and streaming online services.
I am considering an Nvidia Shield TV and getting an HD HomeRun device that can stream the cable feed but am not sure if that would offer a considerable improvement vs the Nexus Player.
Believe it or not, Tivo actually makes a pretty good solution that lets you record 4 shows at once, and stream Netflix, Amazon Prime, Hulu Plus, Vudu, YouTube, Pandora, and a few others. You can also get Tivo mini's for other rooms that will connect back to the primary unit to stream recorded shows and live TV.
The catch is, that it only works with Cable providers. So it will not work with DirecTV and fiber providers like U-Verse and Google Fiber.

It's little and it's down at the bottom... kind of hard to find

Thise two have ALWAYS lead sales, they have a strangle hold on the market. They are familiar names and their consistent performance has kept them on top... it will be hard to take their crowns...
