FF3/Epiphany memory impressions

I've been browsing around for a bit taking care to go exactly the same places and do exactly the same things in FF3 and Epiphany 2.20.2, based on FF2. Observing resident - shared memory at each step, I'd say they are neck and neck. Using about 35MB each, they don't vary from each other by more than a MB or two. Of course, Epiphany is 64 bit and the available binary for FF3 is 32 bit. So I'd say, based upon this informal test, that Epiphany still has the edge. Epiphany in Fedora 9 should be based upon FF3. I'm looking forward to seeing its numbers.
