    I don’t think we had enough fixes in this build ;)

    It is sad that Feedview is removed from Firefox 1.5. I know that it’s becase there are too much bugs in it, I understand, but Opera and Safari already have a similar feature. I just hope that Firefox will get back feedview before Microsoft releases IE7, because, for the first time, IE will have a feature that me (and, I’m sure, a lot of people) want and Firefox won’t have it.

    Anyway, I can’t find anything else to complain about ;)

    this is the first time ever when firefox comes down to second place on vm size. it was the long run winner since i first used it… about autumn 2003… now yahoo messenger has won the first place (however, helped by the 10 days uptime). after restarting ymsg, firefox has come back on the top: the memory eater ! it even beats outlook 2003

  7. Adam Bramwell Says:

    I agreew with Costin, my FF installation is regularly using 100mb of memory, why?

    That said, I love seeing so much green on a page. These nightlies are really stable and I’m impressed in all other areas.
