Firefox 7 Released: 50% reduction in memory

Wednesday, September 28th, 2011 | Business | by

FirefoxMozilla released Firefox 7 yesterday to the general public.

Don’t think of Firefox 7 as a totally new browser, they are just adopting the Chrome release number system (much more frequent releases, more minor upgrades).

The biggest gain in Firefox 7 is in that it can reduce memory usage by up to 50%, along with other performance optimizations.

Relevant to developers, the updated browser now includes support for the W3C navigation timing spec API, and a new Canvas renderer that is hardware-accelerated.
