But they all use too much memory.
As I write, I have 5 Chrome tabs open. Task Manager shows that there are 7 copies of chrome.exe running using a total of 150 Mbytes.
Can someone explain to me why it needs to use 150 Mbyes of of memory to display 5 web pages which, probably total no more than 2 Mbytes (including all graphics).
Firefox has a similar problem except it doesn't make multiple copies of itself. Even after I've shut Firefox down there's often a 75Mbyte (or so) Firefox process running in the background.
Give Chrome its due, it's fast.
Installing Safari and opening up 5 tabs resulted in 1 Safari process running, but taking up 175 Mbytes.
So there's not much to choose between Safari and Chrome. Both take up too much memory, Both are faster than most other browsers at rendering.
TBH, it's not speed which worries me. It's the reckless way these thing eat up my memory.
Speed is mainly dependent upon how the websites have been programmed and deployed. The browser is just a bit part player in the speed stakes.
