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.

Got fed up with Firefox because of this, and recently switched browsers to Lunascape. It's switchable on the fly between 3 engines, "Firefox's Gecko, Chrome's Webkit, and IE's Trident engine". It also uses Firefox extensions with no problems, and no breaking compatibility every week. Also very configurable.

Yeah, I'm with you on that one. Using Midori in Linux at the moment.
