Did you guys notice that Firefox 2.0 released a lot of upgrade and it still consume a lot of memory usage. I open 2 tab to surf and it already takes up 75 mb memory, sometimes it takes up more and make my system lag.
Because of that, I plan to test the Firefox 3 beta 1 and a lot of people mention is faster and does not takes up more memory. I go ahead to Google and search for the installer and get it downloaded from here , then install straight after downloaded and everything run smoothly with all the bookmark and setting imported from earlier version. Good thing is it does not overwrite the previous version, that’s mean you will have 2 copy of Firefox on your rig.
Here is the memory usage on the Firefox 3 beta 1 after i open 5 tabs browsing, compare to previous version if I have open 5 tabs it takes about 100 ++ Mb memory.
