Also, Dan Parent from OEone noticed that typing chrome://messenger/content/messenger.xul in a tab loads mailnews into the tab! Same with Chatzilla (chrome://chatzilla/content/chatzilla.xul )."

#66 How come tabs solves the memory leaks?

The tabbed browser has significantly improved mozilla for me since I no longer have to close and restart it after, say, fifty new windows worth of memory leaks have started thrashing my system.

So, how come the memory management of the tabbed system is so much better than the new window one (being naive for a moment -- I would have thought it would have been easier the other way round with all the memory leaks ditched when the window closes...)

Good stuff.
