post #51 of 61
I've noticed a memory leak in my beta 10, it sometime would use 2.5gb!

Tools -> options -> advanced -> general -> use hardware acceleration when available
Awesome dude, thank you.

I also heard hardware acceleration also causes complications when it comes to 2D clocks on Desktop and then attempting to watch a video.

Would you rather have a fully functional browser with no issues at release, or a buggy browser with dozens or exploits at release?

I guess you would be the same person who would complain and whine about how bad firefox is, if they release without fixing bugs and betas.

If you dont like the beta, stay on the stable version or use a different browser. Im not sure why you have problem with Firefox fixing bugs and such.

Beta 10, and counting... This version is promising to be a bigger turkey than even the worst Netscrap that came out.

Loaded question.

Regardless of how many beta's they do, this will never happen and has never happened, with ANY browser. They all have issues at release or shortly after. If they didn't there would never be updates.

EDIT: Also, as much as I love Firefox, these beta releases are NOT news. Do we really have to post up a "news article" each time they drop a beta?

Minimal issues would have been a better choice of words.

It is ironic to see Chrome fanboys hate Firefox for having too many betas. Especially when Chrome 9 had 9 betas. Chrome 10 beta already has 6 betas.

Anyone who does software development knows that software undergoes massive amounts of revisions and fixes. You don't just write the software 3 times and say it is done.

If you want to compare memory usage between FF4 and Chrome/Chromium, here it is:



FF4 beta11pre uses 302 MB of ram for 12 tabs. On the other hand, Chromium uses about 370 MB of ram for the same 12 tabs.

Opera 11 only uses 255 MB for the same 12 tabs.

@Riou: When tallying up Firefox's memory usage, did you add in the memory for "plugin-container.exe" as well? It probably wouldn't be much, but just making sure the playing field is even for the tests. I still think FF uses less memory with it added in, just wanted to make sure. Either way, memory usage is a moot point anymore imo. The days of process ending and service stopping to free up memory is pretty much gone with the amount of memory in the average computer, not counting the insane amounts we have in our rigs here at OCN. I used to be OCD about it myself, but finally realized I bought this memory for a reason, why not use it?

Anyway, speed and memory usage is a non issue honestly. They are all so close that it takes a benchmark to tell the difference for the most part. Pick the browser that is stable and has the features and UI that you prefer, the end. Firefox is my preference and by the looks of things, it will continue to be for a long while.
