Strangely, I have been using Netscape 4.X for the longest time and found well behaved memory management, until I recently went to Netscape 4.78, and noticed that it was leaking like crazy. However, after I started using Netscape 6.2 (the first Netscape 6.X release I seriously used without uninstalling and in fact migrated everything over), I found its memory management compared to 4.78 very tight. I could run it all night and Windows system resources stay high. I have heard other users like you who have experienced massive memory leaks with Netscape 6.X. Beats me.
