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.

For example, when I just ran about:memory on my Firefox it showed me that was using about 55 MB in the browser. I closed that tab and voila, Firefox shrank by about 50 MB.

Almost all of the google web pages are more Javascript application than HTML page and use large amounts of RAM.

Doesn't matter when what I'm concerned about is that Firefox is consuming ~200 MB doing nothing, displaying no web pages, on a fresh start...
