Mozilla Firefox 7 released with a significant reduction of memory usage for faster browsing. In response to users demanding lower memory usage of Firefox, it now uses 20% to 30% less, and sometimes as much as 50% less according to Mozilla Hacks. Expect more memory usage improvements as Mozilla engineers started the effort MemShrink to the stability of Firefox.
I downloaded the latest desktop version on my machine and made some comparison before and after the upgrade, I did notice some improvements in the decrease of memory usage. One thing is the way it handle PDF files that has a blue loading status bar faster than the previous version in terms of page rendering.
