    I know there are a lot of posts about this, but I was looking in the application monitor and found that firefox 1.5.02 on my mac mini duo was using about 75 mb of RAM, safari only used about 15mb. Anyone having similar issue, seems a little steep for firefox. What browser should I use?

    Mhm, well so long as it's not obviously affecting your systems performance I wouldn't worry about it.

    I personally prefer Camino. It's still made by Mozilla, but it's just for OS X. Yay :)

    FireFox's memory usage depends on how many tabs you've had open and how many pages you've viewed.. It has a fast page back feature so that your previously viewed pages per tab are stored in memory for a quick return.

    I personally prefer Camino too. It is just working great and had no issue till now. I have never checked the memory usage as there was no reason for it.:)

    I've been using camino recently. It's VERY fast but not entirely standards compliant.

    Camino is amazing, far better than Safari and Shiira put together.
