Firefox 3 plugs over 300 memory leaks

I've been using the new Firefox beta for a whole day now and not one crash or lockup. Of course I don't have my extensions installed now either, which I suspect is usually the culprit for most problems, although the occasional mishandled piece of html seemed to be a problem every once in a while.

I like the more mac-like skin (especially in forms) in the mac version. It seesm pretty zippy, too.

  1. I agree, I installed it this morning and I'm very impressed. I was watching the memory usage, and after loading a few sites, it was up to 100MB. Then I started closing tabs, and the memory usage actually decreased! Yes, that seems like what it should do, but with Firefox 2, the memory usage never decreased, it only went up until you had to kill it and start over. I'm a very happy camper. :)
