Blog Post 13: Swiping is coming to Firefox for Mac!I've got some great news guys! I am a Mozillian, and I work on the Firefox Project. Well, I saw an old bug from a while ago about adding a swiping animation similar to what Safari uses on OS X. "Finally!" I thought, it was about time. So, I commented, and got to work on it. A guy named Markus worked on it for a while with me, and then he went to something else and it was taken over by Stephen. I am so grateful for him.
I won't lie and say I did most of the work, I didn't. Stephen and Markus did most of the code, as my C++ skills aren't up to par yet (I'm an Objective-C developer), however, I did a lot, and we are close to finishing.
However, there are still a few problems. The biggest problem, is still memory usage. After using Firefox for a day, and since I don't usually quit, around 2:00 P.M. I am at 2.2 GB of memory. Not good. We'll try to fix that soon. Hopefully, swiping will be here by Firefox 20!
