[quote=penang] KM uses the sme Gecko engine as FF, right? I just ran some comparison, with a clean install of both FF and KM, without any plugin. First test: Both browsers open 3 tabs. Second test: Both browsers open 8 tabs. Third test: Both browsers open 16 tabs. Before I continue, here is the spec of my test machine: 4GB of RAM Win XP Pro Free Extended Task Manager by Extendsoft installed What I did is, for first, second and third test, I put exactly same URL, in exactly same order of tab (tab one to aaa.com, tab two to bbb.com and so on), and then I use the "Free Extended Task Manager" to kill both FF and KM. Then I click on FF and KM icons. Both will tell me that they were closed unexpectedly and asked me if I want my old configuration back, and I click "Yes" to both KM and FF. After both FF and KM finish accessing those websites, I use the "Free Extended Task Manager" to look at how much RAM FF and KM takes. Here's what I found: No matter it's 3 tabs or 8 tabs or 16 tabs, KM uses about 20-25% LESS memory than FF. This is what I do not understand. KM uses the same Gecko engine that powers FF, right? Then how come FF consistently consume MORE memory than KM? Anyone can give me a heads-up on this? Thanks !![/quote]
