Mozilla & Gecko clones "A lot of people complain about the Firefox 'memory leak(s)'. All versions of Firefox no doubt leak memory - it is a common problem with software this complicated. We look to fix the issues where we can. David Baron and others have done a huge amount of excellent work in this area. What I think many people are talking about however with Firefox 1.5 is not really a memory leak at all. It is in fact a feature."

How did you test page load time? I think, that it has to be tested on local server, because you can't blame browser for net slowdowns.

Browser load test should be made at least 10 times. How did you test it?

But see, that's the thing. Nothing's really slow. And sure I could get all scientific about this and average out 100 start times and whatnot, but I really don't feel up to it. Feel free though.
