This was Chrome on GMail. Only one instance of it, only one tab.

I hate how Chrome has multiple instances of itself for no reason, and that is needs Google Update to launch on startup

I know! They released them all in quick succession too! Instead of going from Vista to Vista ver 1.5 they went all the way to 7!

You sir, fail to understand the concept.

Ya it does. I'll be sticking to 3.6 too. Which speaks a lot to you're understanding of security matters.

Not no reason, it's a multi-process model. It's part of the security features so that everything runs in a sandbox (process for the tab, process for the browser, process for graphical acceseleration, ect). In addition to making the browser as a whole more stable (even if a single tab goes rouge, you can kill it and not affect everything else).

Yea, stable is a lot slower though. It's only at 9, and generally only changes every few months.

Seems to be strange for Mozilla to be doing the version thing though, especially after, what, 10 betas?

Honestly, IE has given me the least problems of all the major browsers. Chrome used to crash on me, as did FF.

Sure IE is as slow as freeze-dried molasses, but it never crashed on me!(And it never used up insane amounts of RAM. I took a screen-grab of FF using nearly 1Gb of my RAM. It was a terrible memory leak that they fixed long ago)
