Use Chrome 😃 Joking aside Firefox is known for not having the best memory management. Not really much you can do apart from keep an eye on its memory usage in Task manager.

In decent words, I'm not very fond of Chrome. Oh well I find FF suite me best. I guess I just gonna have to live with it. I'll try to bring the case to Firefox forum.:)

Amit, I am an Opera advocate, so do you know what I suggest you? ... Yes, throw out FF, Chrome, IE etc. and grab OPERA 😃

Amit, you know how it goes, if I say that Opera is fast and light on resources, other one will deny it, so make up your own mind. Give it a try and you will see ... As for my experiences with Opera, no problems at all, I have used to it.

Ah yes. But what about the bookmark management, Adblockinga nd NoScript alternative in Opera? I use FF mainly because of these three things.

As for the Adblocking and NoScript, I don't use them as I am using Ad Muncher ;) Regarding the bookmarks, it fulfills my needs (unlimited speed dial, nice bookmark management, possibility to sync them across PCs and mobile devices using Opera Link etc.).

Bookmark management is excellent and very customizable. And, there is an ad-blocker extension available which works decently.
