General discussion about K-Meleon.
[quote=penang] [quote=Lux]That's just because Firefox is mainly written in XUL. XUL is not optimized for one OS. That's why its performance is not as high as a native application that is specialized for one OS. KM can only run on Windows but FF can run on many kinds of platform, right? There is also this browser called "Camino" that is optimized for Mac OS X, which is faster than FF too.[/quote]Thanks for the explanation ! I was very surprise when I ran those tests. I did not expect that FF took so much more memory than KM. I thought KM, using the same Gecko engine as FF, would use roughly equivalent amount of memory for same task, but I was wrong. 20% to 25% might be nothing, in this age of multi-gigabyte memory machine, but still, that's something KM has over FF.[/quote]
