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. 😉
I think that’s the best solution given that I have little confidence developers will start writing memory-lean code 🙂
Let’s see… when is Apple releasing that new Macbook Pro…
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.
