Internet Explorer A store owner in a bad neighborhood must balance safety against commerce. Too many locks and bars will keep away customers with the crooks. Based on Microsoft Watch reader feedback, Internet Explorer 7 sacrifices too much usability in the interest of safety.

I love this argument. The core of IE is built into Windows so how can you possibly know how much actual memory IE is using? Simply looking at the iexplorer.exe won't show you an actual amount of memory that IE is using.

However, I do agree that Firefox uses a lot of memory and even more so when you start opening a bunch of tabs. It's also slow to start. Although IE7 is better than IE6 I still find Firefox to be a much better browser.
