firefox 3 memory usage

pavlov.net has a good writeup about the memory usage in firefox 3, covering the effort that went into it as well as evaluation methods and results. It’s an easy and interesting read, with pictures! With 8 tabs of fairly large pages open right now, and the browser open for a day or two, firefox is now using 175MB on my computer. :)

  1. Yeah, but what will it take to make Safari and Opera fanatics stop talking about it? You’ll note that even in the comments on blog posts about this, there are still people saying “but Opera uses less memory!” despite evidence to the contrary.
