I'm sure you've all read about the Firefox memory leak brouhaha. Firefox 1.5+ is supposed to suck down memory like there is no tomorrow. Someone made this challenge: http://blog.wired.com/monkeybites/ "If you keep opening tabs in Firefox say, more than 10 or 15 the browser starts to slow to a crawl. See how many tabs you can open, but participate at your own risk! Oh, and uh... be sure to save all of your work first." Well I ran that test. I opened 33 tabs in FF 1.5.01 on my iBook (see sig). FF doesn't bat an eyelash, no slowdown whatsoever. Now for the interesting part. I sparked up the Activity Monitor and took a gander. So, FF is using 137.73 MB of RAM - that's with 33 tabs! OK, now get this: Safari, with ONE window, no extra tabs uses: 187.91 MB of RAM! OK, I've been continuously amazed at how Safari sucks up RAM - I can restart the computer, and within minutes of light use, I've got Safari at around 400MB of RAM used! The only reason apparently it uses only 187 MB is because I wasn't using it, it just sat there, while I put FF through its paces with 33 tabs and heavy use of graphics etc. Amazing. That, and the daily hanging and crashing every couple of days, makes me somewhat disappointed in Safari. I still like it very much, and use it as my primary browser (and it is quite fast most of the time), but I really wish Apple fixed Safari... they didn't do it in 10.4.5... oh well.
