By on May 12th, 2008

Well I am seriously not kidding but I could reduce Firefox memory usage from a whooping 40 MB to barely 452Kbs.

This was possible by using a nifty tool called Firefox Ultimate Optimizer. I was really baffled seeing the results there was a more here is the screen shot from my task manager after using Firefox Ultimate Optimizer.

    And what about memory usage when you have 20+ tabs opened?
    Still so low? ;)

    Thanks a lot for the mention. Did you figure out the secret behind this application?

    Anyone tried that yet? I often have FF exceeding 400MB of RAM. I hope FF3 is going to handle RAM better

    You don’t need something like this with Firefox 3. Memory usage is lower then IE7, FF2 and Opera 9.

    I’m using FF3 and my task manager says ff is running at 66,668 kb! with no add on’s or plug in’s!

    I believe it’s a fake. It may appear to have reduced the Mem usage. But if you check on the Performance tab in the window task manager, you’ll see that the usage is still the same.
