Thanks for this great find. I already knew about how to load the pages faster but not about the RAM.

Givin' it a shot.  I've always noticed that firefox, more than anything I typically run, takes up the most memory.  Thanks for the post.

I already use the config.trim_on_minimize = true setting which makes Firefox free up some of the memory it was holding on to when you minimize it.  I'm not sure if I've done the others, but I'll check them out.  Thanks for the tip.

I looked at the memory usage of both firefox and IE(6.0 and 7.0) and there really isn't much difference that it would affect using other programs(besides some games). I find using the fasterfox extension greatly increases memory usage though.
