Default I hate to say it but.....

I actually like IE7. There I said it. It looks pretty, runs well, has tabs, and uses lots less RAM than Firefox without the memory leakage. Until Konqueror is ported over proper to Windows, I will be using IE7 when using XP.

Anyone else tried it?

Actually, I'm using IE7 extensively right now. Firefox's memory leak is pretty damned annoying if you ask me.

Firefox devs have already clarified that it's not a leak, it's a feature.

Yeah... unused RAM is wasted RAM. <img src=smilies/laff.gif>

I use Avant Browser, which is the best of both worlds (IE compatability combined with the many features of Firefox, etc).
Though in terms of pure speed, Opera is the fastest.

Just thinking of reasons they could use to explain the "feature" (memory leak).

I didn't think it would be that hard to connect the dots... <img src=smilies/mystery.gif>

Not everyone has a gig of RAM, and its absolute laziness to program something to use 2-3 times more RAM than it actually should need.

So turn off the page caching and let the rest of us with decent systems enjoy it.
