Yeah, that and not working with keychain, and problems with italics, and button issues... I switched back to safari a while ago.

Ugh, why do the Dock and the Activity Monitor, etc. use so much VM? That’s seriously effed up o.O

(Yeah, FF is a memory hog; the bug is simple and known for ages and noone cares about it)

Darwin's VM system tends to give processes way more virtual memory than they need. The simplest Perl script takes up 100 MB or so of VM (or at least that's how much is reported). It doesn't seem to affect performance though, so I suspect there's a Good Reason for it.

Holy hell. The Mac version apparently hasn't been optimized or somesuch. I rarely have it top 100mb, and lesser mortals would cringe at the number of tabs I generally have open. Normally I wouldn't allow such memory usage, but it's Windows, and there's a reason I have 2Gb.

I was on Safari for a while, but recently switched back to Firefox. I mean, I average around 300mb, and since I'm usually pretty low key surfing, I place a greater value on, say, having the links I click from Gmail open up in tabs instead of new windows, etc.

Well, for Windows users, like myself, Firefox is better than anything... Don't even get me started on I.E...

in windows my fireox eats about that much memory and then at least 10% of the processor. but that is because i generally have 20-30 tabs open.
