If you haven't seen this blog entry, its worth reading. A great description (illustrated!) of why Firefox ends up hogging so much memory-- fairly bad heap fragmentation, and what they are now doing about it.

Great blog comments too, really nice to see dtrace and other analysis tools to benchmark and debug Mozilla. Plenty of useful solutions offered, and the blogger is currently testing OpenBSD's malloc with positive results.
