Since its record setting release day a lot has been written about Firfox3. And many said it has better memmory usage. Firefox 3 engineer Pavlov says Fiefox 3 has better memmory utilization, and I have looked at every blog and website that talked about how Fiefox 3 is better is terms of memmory use.
So I am surprised to see that in my office PC( IBM, Machine with Pentium 4 and 1GB RAM, WinXP) opening google home page using an ultra high speed Corporate internet connection in opera 9.5 and Firefox 3. Firefox raking in more memmory compared to Opera. I’m a big fan of Firefox because it’s so easy to customize, and have been using it for many years. and use it even in the office despite most of our internal applications not working on it, ofcourse I use a lot customizations.
Some How the final release uses more memmory compared to Opera and freezes more often while opening more than 10 or pages. Ofcourse I was not using any extensions while testing Firefox 3 vs Opera9.5
And acording to CNET also opera takes less memmory compared to Firefox 3
