Chrome uses 3 processes for 1 tab.
4 tabs open for me is using about 150mb of ram. Chrome used twice that on my system ...http://www.zdnet.com/blog/hardware/ie9-vs-chrome-10-vs-firefox-4-rc-vs-opera-1101-vs-safari-5-the-big-browser-benchmark/11890
Here's a speed benchmark comparison. Chrome is the fastest in most of the benchmarks.
I'm using FF4 and with 3 tabs open its using 456mb of ram. How is it not a memory hog?
Browse to your Firefox profile's extension folder e.g. C:\Users\[Username]\AppData\Roaming\Mozilla\Firefox\Profiles\[unique id].default\extensionsI am still with my firfox 3 because most of my add-ons are not working with firefox 4.
Is there any solution for it?
I never had that issue with chrome, the only issue I found with chrome is a lot of sites was not compatible with the browser and some sites would not update there site to support chrome. As for FF4 I love it I have been a fan for firefox since version 2.I switched over the day it was released after checking it out. Was using Chrome before. Seems to play better with dark GTK themes and has less of a memory leak than FF3. Chrome is glitchy sometimes, too. I couldn't leave a chrome window open overnight because it would freeze later.
