I'm running a 5 year old one.

Your point?

It doesn't have to be 10 years (I said 10, not 5), the fact is that being worried over memory usage on something like this when you have 4GB of RAM is redundant.

I have 2 GB, I tried upgrading once but I couldn't get my rig to boot after installing.
Still, when I do use FF, It has a nasty habit of chomping up a lot of memory over a period of time.

Mostly with flash videos and little things like that.
No-Script helps though.

Well, to be fair I did say, "Looking at such a trivial amount of memory being used on all of these browsers when most people rock over 4GB of very fast RAM."

I think reality is that if Firefox is seriously slowing you down even with 2GB of RAM, there may be another underlying issue with your system.

Could be wrong though. This is an enthusiast forum, so I should have specified that, I guess.

I know performance matters to almost everyone here, but we're talking a very small difference. >_>

Oh, I see what you're saying now.
I thought that as well. Unfortunately, my FF has a habit of lagging a lot when using higher amounts of ram.

Little things like clicking a link take significantly more time and watching videos becomes choppy and horrendous.

I'm not sure if that's with everybody, but it does cause a significant amount of strain. That's why I value tests like these, especially with newer versions of the browser.

Srsly ? I run around 50 - 80 tabs on chrome and i had recently 120 tabs on Firefox. Lowered to 40, though :/

EDIT : I use latest Chrome and FF 6.0

You want to give credibility to this useless, redundant thread to the point of lying?



I'm kidding, although I do find your comments interesting, even more so that you stick with 2GB of RAM. Given how cheap RAM is, and how much you spend on Chocolate. ^_~

Although my test is a little different, I am not using 1.5GB for about 100 tabs of Overclock.net.

Its @ about 450mb to Chrome. Although I am running a beta, and a lot of the latest and greatest has been tweaking it to run better...

I usually have 4-5 tabs MAX. I'll use more in certain situations but i can only look at one page at a time, and that's what my favorites bar is for, quick switching.
I have 3 monitors, 24 GB of RAM (thats fast too) and I still have my old Win 95 habbits of keep it to 3 or 4 websites at the most, nothing running in the background. I don't even let my Internet security run in the background.... I think I am obsessed with it being minimalism.
