    Ran across this article about Firefox 3's improved memory use and how they did it. It also has a good section on improved memory reporting in Vista (vs. XP) and how to test your browser.

    Thanks for the article InfinityAz.:)

    Gave it a run in Returnil mode and it did use less memory on this XP setup.

    Roughly about a 20% decrease with two of my addons being incompatible.

    Seems to be on the right track though and will be updating when further developed.

    Also ran no probs through Sandboxie.

    Yes, great article! I can also tell that its faster and I have no sandboxie issues either. I am currently using Firefox 3.0b4 with no problems. I also modified some of my plug-ins so they can work with the new beta. :)
