Too slow, Firefox, too slow

Of late, many of my organisational computational tools are online (Google Apps for company email, contacts, calendar and presentations; WordPress, Eventbrite, MailChimp, Google Analytics, bit.ly, Vimeo, and DreamHost panel for my website; Remember The Milk todo manager, NetVibes feed reader, online banking, Flickr for my blog… you get the idea).

Problem is, Mozilla Firefox 3.6 has become F A R  T O O O  S L O O O O W.

When I type in text, there is a significant lag, as though I am using Windows 95 on a 286.

So, I have plunged and moved to Chromium, the open source browser that underpins Google Chrome.

Have I been too hasty? Have I been too fast? Firefox 4 has just been released, and apparently benchmarks put it ahead of the browser game.
