La consommation de mémoire de FireFox est un sujet de plus en plus sensible... Enfin pris en considération?
It's become increasingly clear over the last several months that we have
a pretty pressing need to deal with increases in memory usage in
Firefox. Since we released 4 (and before, too), we've seen lots of
reports about Firefox memory usage being higher than in older versions,
and that Firefox memory usage is growing over time.
It's pretty clear by now that this is a much bigger problem than any one
person can likely tackle. So to help get more attention to this issue
we'll be starting up a MemShrink effort, where a group of people will
get together to look at the big picture, triage bugs, investigate
general approaches, and do some brainstorming. This effort will start as
weekly meetings, and down the road once it seems we have a handle on
this problem we'll taper off and do these meetings at a different
interval, or not at all, depending on what things look like then.
