Firefox 7 to Use as Much as 50 Percent Less Memory

With Firefox 6 with a foot barely out of the door, word is already out about Firefox 7. Versions of Firefox have been appearing at shorter intervals than ever before, so it will only be a matter of weeks before FF 7 makes its appearance. The word is 7 will be much faster while using up to 50% less memory than FF 6. At least they could have waited until its release this week to start touting its replacement. big grin

In particular, Firefox 7′s memory usage will stay steady if you leave it running overnight, and it will free up more memory when you close many tabs."
