Mozilla & Gecko clones For its upcoming Firefox 4.0 release, Mozilla has been concentrating a great deal on what is often cited as the main shortcoming of Firefox ... its speed. For example, Firefox 4.0 will include GPU acceleration for both rendering and compositing on Windows 7/Vista, OSX and Linux, and it will have GPU acceleration for compositing only for Windows XP.

Me it's the opposite (Linux). I find Chrome to leak considerably to the point that my swap is in active use while Firefox's memory usage is considerably less.

From leakage or simply higher memory needs? Quite a difference.
