Mozilla & Gecko clones Mozilla has released Firefox 7. Unlike releases of Firefox 5 and Firefox 6 which were relatively minor upgrades to the browser, Firefox 7 includes a number of significant improvements, most important of which is probably the drastically reduced memory usage.

I logged out of Google.com in Firefox and Chrome.
Closed all windows and unpinned all tabs, went to google.com and closed the browsers.

Fired them back up and Chrome is using 48M while Firefox is using 85M.

The real benchmark is what the memory footprint will look like after real use and leaving it up for a while.
