How?Eh, I may be jaded, but I am kinda loosing my faith in Firefox. It used to be a great piece of software for web browsing that used low resources. It has become very bloated. Does anyone have any suggestions for something that isn't such a memory hog?
How many tabs were you using to bring it's usage up to 174m?? I assume you must have had a lot open. Running FF 2.0 right now and using less than 50m of memory with 2 tabs in use. I don't think you will find a browser that wont start loading up your memory once you open a bunch of sites at the same time!using 174,000k right now.
That's how much memory firefox is using right now on my computer.
it goes back to what I said about it being to bloated.
