OK, I don’t know what’s going on with Firefox (currently at 22.214.171.124), but it has been sucking ass lately … and I’m a huge Mozilla fan.
- Rapidly climbing to >1GB RAM utilization
- Sucking up a full CPU … sometimes randomly
- Generally hanging all the time
I’m hoping it’s something to do with the Web 2.0 type stuff that I’m encountering more sites using (namely Google, Google Apps, etc) … that combined with some good old fashioned memory leaks in the browser and the add-ons I use.
A lot of the sites now have auto-refresh, plus those that don’t that I need refreshing, I do through Tab Mix Plus. I’m sure all of this reloading of pages is amplifying the memory leaks.
In conversation, aside from “Get a Mac”, someone commented that I should give Apple’s Safari Beta 3 for Windoze a shot … so I just grabbed and installed it.
So far, it appears to be a real Windoze app because now I must reboot. See you later!
