Firefox 3 to cure memory leak issues?
March 17, 2008
Could it be true? Please say it is!
Ars Technica is reporting that intensive browsing in Firefox 3 beta generally consumes less than half the memory that Firefox 2 does. They’ve also looked against the competitors and found that it uses less memory than IE7 and Opera as well.
Now I’m really excited about the coming release of Firefox 3! The memory leak issues have always been my only issue with the browser, if they fix it Firefox will be as near to perfect as I require for my browsing needs.
I’m still adamant it’s Flash that causes the leak though as I never get it unless there is Flash on a page and I leave it in a tab for a while…
