Mozilla & Gecko clones "A lot of people complain about the Firefox 'memory leak(s)'. All versions of Firefox no doubt leak memory - it is a common problem with software this complicated. We look to fix the issues where we can. David Baron and others have done a huge amount of excellent work in this area. What I think many people are talking about however with Firefox 1.5 is not really a memory leak at all. It is in fact a feature."

Actually, I thought that the whole point of Firefox was basically to strip out most of the features and add them back as extensions so that you could customize it as much as you wanted, and most importantly leave out the stuff you didn't need.

And what exactly were the features that were stripped out and put into extensions?

Most of the extensions I've seen were created by third-parties who don't even have an adequate understanding of the Firefox architecture and therefore create poor performing extensions.
