Firefox 3 Memory Usage Better Than Other Browsers

Firefox 3 logo

Sam Allen from Dot NET Pearls has written a great program to observe the memory taken up by each of the 5 most popular browsers. His experiment was to taken snapshots of memory usage numbers every 3 seconds for a period of 3 hours. The graphs posted on his Firefox 3 Memory Benchmarks and Comparison page are quite interesting, particularly showing that Firefox 3 is ahead of all the competitors with its rather stable and humble memory requirements.

I’ve been using Firefox 3 full-time since RC2, and must say I’m really impressed with its stability and performance.

You still have the time to make a pledge and download it: Firefox 3 download day.

Adsense Notifier extension finally fixed!

Adsense Notifier

Just when I have almost given up on the broken Adsense Notifier script, it got updated and fixed! You can download the latest version here: Adsense Notifier.

The current version is 0.9.6, and it once again shows all the Adsense earnings in the toolbar of my Firefox.

Adsense Notifier is one of the most useful extensions for me, because it saves me the effort of regularly checking the status of my Adsense account (which is a very bad habit – wastes a lot of time). Simply configure the settings to your likings, and all your vital Adsense stats will be automatically downloaded and delivered to your statusbar. Incredibly useful!
