Mozilla & Gecko clones Over the weekend, the crew at Tom's Hardware was busy testing the recently-released Firefox 22 using the usual bevy of benchmarks. This roundup included Chrome 27, Firefox 22, IE10, and Opera 12, along with the new Chromium-based build of Opera Next (alos known as Opera 15).

So, again, what was the point of going through all that crap and looking through dozens of smaller values when I only care about the grand total--which any system monitor should return accurately? The end result is that the browser itself shows a very similar "total memory usage," and that's what I care about.

Because you still don't know why it is using that memory.
Mozilla measures memory usage of each build:

How much more clear do I have to be: I DO NOT CARE why Firefox is using the memory it is using. As a user, I just don't f***ing care. What I care about is HOW MUCH it uses. And a completely fresh, empty browser window taking 150+ MB is *not* light, which brings me back to my original point. Because I'm just running circles trying to get the point across to you, I'll just end this discussion here.
