I read that FF7 (and perhaps the later versions also) has much better memory leak prevention. So far, for me, this is the only real improvement in the FF line. If they can stop the memory from being gobbled and keep it at sensible levels then I will upgrade.

Firefox (the FF9a that I'm using) has a really nice about:memory page, where every little detail can be seen. How much JS, and other things take up memory and from there you can manually do Garbage Collect (GC) if you like. Interesting...

Seamonkey 2.3 also has this "memory-tree" Smile

As for your JS paranoia there's an option in the settings tab "Tell websites I don't want to be tracked"

Maybe that will help you Wink

Sure, if the receiving website can be trusted to obey it. FWIW I already have that setting with the NoScript addon, but it is not something I believe is actually helping much.
