I do this too, meaning click ads like that when I am bored. But they have gotten out of hand in certain sites. I was referring to my clan site, on FF it takes 2 seconds to load, and on Chrome, it takes about 10-14 seconds.

I still have yet to notice any difference in speed over several versions of Firefox... slow or fast...

And I use it all day.

*shrug*

Do you guys sit around with stop watches or something?
