I just check my email in Ubuntu archive. And wow.. there a shocking subject. 'FireFox using 500MB of RAM'. What? I was half unbelieve it. I am FireFox user. Every day, everytime, I use it on my online activity.
But, exactly, yeah FireFox is really consumtic in memory, especially the newest one; Firefox 3.0.10.
I asked to my friend how to see memory consumtion in Ubuntu, and he gimme the instruction. It's through System Monitor that you can access from System » Administration.
I can't believe it! One page you open in Firefox [include in this category new tab] is 'eat' memory! If you open pages with full ajax or flash, it might be happen. So, I just wonder if in my ubuntu maling-list there's a man that told us if his firefox consumtion is 1 GB! What kind of pages are he open?
How is yours?
