Mozilla & Gecko clones Over the weekend, the crew at Tom's Hardware was busy testing the recently-released Firefox 22 using the usual bevy of benchmarks. This roundup included Chrome 27, Firefox 22, IE10, and Opera 12, along with the new Chromium-based build of Opera Next (alos known as Opera 15).

But that's not to say that browsers themselves haven't exploded over the last several years.

I don't agree with that assessment. Most browsers have a memory report now to see why it is using memory. If you take Firefox 1.0 and add features like a jit, type inference, anti phishing, databases, gpu acceleration etc. it uses 40MB instead of 32MB at startup.
Everything above that 40MB is either extensions or websites. Try about:memory

What do you think a browser should use?
