General discussion about K-Meleon.
[quote=jmillar] In my experience there DOES seem to be a memory leak. I can't leave K-Meleon from one day to the next with 10 or more layers open. Memory use goes through the roof, making the whole thing of leaving layers open for ongoing work an exercise in futility. I put a great deal more RAM in the system, but even then mem usage will grow from day to day. An excellent workaround till the Mozilla GRE gets sorted out would be a session recovery option for all layers. This is one major reason for using Firefox which also leaks memory, because I can close it, purging memory, and everything will come up again as I left it. That is the major reason for not adopting K-Meleon as my main tool, as well as Firefox's better handling of bookmarks. K-Meleon's bookmark editing is a bit of a pain and it has a hardcoded bookmark limit. Sure wish I was proficient enough as a coder to hack away at the source, and see if I can improve it! I recently saw an external bookmark manager that shows promise, but it's shareware, not open source, unfortunately. But I may consider it. K-Meleon is MUCH nimbler and friendly in a Windows environment, and for routine tasks I prefer it as my default application, but for serious work I must use the *cough* 'boat anchor'. It's funny the way applications grow over the years. I used 0.8 and 0.9 versions of 'Firebird' on an obsolete 166 Pentium MMX, and it could cope handily![/quote]
