General discussion about K-Meleon.
[quote=j] Hi, Version 1.6 beta seems to be as fast as 1.5.4. However, I have noticed that in general browsing and particularly when loading gmail, there is a huge memory spike in version 1.6. This would be as big as most of the main browsers out there that I have tried. These include, Chrome, Firefox, etc. I am concerned that K-Meleon 1.6 is moving in the wrong direction. It will become as big a memory hog as any of the other main browsers. Result = K-Meleon will fade into history. I think the developer needs to get back to what was so good about 1.5.4. Version 1.5.4 was extremely memory efficient, which 1.6 beta is not. If version 1.6 is not as memory efficient as 1.5.4, I can't see myself using K-Meleon in the future. Why not use any of the other main browsers ? I really like 1.5.4, and if its memory efficiency is maintained in 1.6, K-Meleon will be a fantastic web browser. I think you have a great browser, don't make it become like all the other memory hogs available.[/quote]
