Submission + - Mozilla MemShrink Set to fix Firefox Memory ( 3

darthcamaro writes: If you're like a lot of Firefox 4 users out there, you've probably noticed that Firefox has a serious memory problem — it uses alot more than it really should. At long last, Mozilla developers are finally set to take this issue seriously with a dedicated team called MemShrink that are focused on the problem.

"It's pretty clear by now that this is a much bigger problem than any one person can likely tackle," Mozilla Developer, Johnny Stenback said.
