Firefox 7 beta delivers major memory usage improvements

Posted on Friday, August 19 2011 @ 22:56:18 CEST by

The Register reports Mozilla published the first beta version of Firefox 7. This new release delivers significant reductions in memory usage, as well as increased performance for HTML5 Canvas animation, enhanced CSS3 support, and Firefox Sync improvements.
Mozilla's next release of Firefox will be known for its significant reductions in memory utilisation, an issue that has dogged Firefox since its first release. Now Mozilla says it has implemented what it calls Memshrink in such a way that it expects somewhere on the order of a 20 to 30 per cent decrease in memory utilisation.

Back in July, reports surfaced that Mozilla achieved significant decreases in memory use thanks to increasing the frequency of garbage collection and that has now made its way into Firefox 7. Mozilla claims that the improvement will help keep Javascript memory usage down to a respectable level.
