#18 Memory...

About that memory-thing in his article... He obviously knows as much about the memory-usage of Mozilla as I do, but I would like to learn a bit more (if possible...). Using Mozilla as my primary browser and E-mail app, I use it 100% of the time and I have sometimes taken a peek at the windows task manager to see how much memory Mozilla is eating... When browsing around and opening new windows I have been up to 80 or 90Mb (never seen 100Mb or more, but that must be that blank page he opened :) Might we be able to convince him all the white in that blank page he used for the test uses up as much memory is at sends out light into your room?). When I close pages memory usage reduces, possibly not to the level it started from, I'm not sure. Stranger things however happen when minimizing my last Mozilla window. Most of the time memory usage by Mozilla drops in a second from (lets say) 50Mb to 500Kb. It then starts to increase again. First slowely, but with some giant leeps up to something about 25Mb. Total memory usage reported by the taskmanager however doesn't change a bit. Whether mozilla is using 50Mb or 500Kb a second later, total memory usage still is 195Mb. Can anyone explain this?
