Browsers are hungry for memory too

I think over the past few years, my internet browsing experience has steadily decreased.

From Firefox leaking memory like a sieve to Safari officially eating more memory than Eclipse on a consistent basis.

Memory, it’s what’s for dinner.

    Luckily, memory is cheap. Get a 64bit chip, and load it up to 8GB and you’ll be happy again. ๐Ÿ˜‰

    I would say try chrome, but I think it’s not yet available for the Mac. On windows it’s IMHO the fastest and leanest browser.

    Another tip: try disabling flash completely. It’s a memory hog. I’ve disabled flash in all but one of my browser config’s.
