Firefox is a memory hog?

Recommended Posts

Well that's something new! I'm might try that FF "hack" though it isn't actually a hack.

It work best if you got some ram 256 MB ok on XP with 2000 MB load in 1/2 the time go's very good you not know it firfox.

Yes, it always has been.

firefox 3 is supposed to fix the memory leaks but they've been saying that since 1.0.

Firefox 3.0 Beta 4 uses less memory than IE7, Opera 9.5 Beta 1 and Firefox 2.0.0.12 while it opens multiple pages. Just as importantly, the newest beta of Firefox 3 does a much better job reclaiming memory when tabs are closed than its predecessor, Firefox 2.0.0.12.

FF 3.0 is much better than FF 2 in memory leaking terms but overall, Firefox is still hogging way too much memory and I'm using FF 3 beta 5.
