Firefox V3.5.10 vrs v3.6.6

What planet are you on? FireFox certainly does separate processes. How can you discuss this intelligently if you don't even know the basic facts?

 

Firefox does not have a multi-process architecture, except for Flash, Silverlight and QuickTime which are all sandboxed.

They run in a separate process just like Chrome. Chrome also separates the extensions and that's in Firefox's future plans.

 

Your talking in circles. Since FireFox 3.6 the plugins have run in a separate process. This is the path Chrome has taken and the result is an increase in memory usage. What are you talking about and what is your point?

I'm talking about separating tabs, not only processes. This is what IE has been doing since IE 8.

No FireFox doesn't do that yet and I never said it did. It's heading that way though. Chrome does it and it's memory hog.

Well, Firefox can't (at least not on my system) release memory when you close a tab. Having a one-process-per-tab architecture fixes that, at the expense of using a bit more memory for each tab.

Besides, the only wasted RAM is unused RAM.
