Default Mozilla stuffs a RAM usage optimiser into Firefox Aurora beta

*WEB BROWSER DEVELOPER* Mozilla has updated its Aurora channel with a
beta version of Firefox that among many other things looks to optimise
memory usage.


Earlier this week, the folks at Mozilla uncovered what was starting to
look like a solution for Firefox's Achilles heel, resource usage
<http://www.theinquirer.net/inquirer/news/2084239/mozilla-reduce-firefox-memory-usage>.
By increasing the frequency of the browser's garbage collection on its
Javascript engine, some testers were reporting a significant drop in
memory usage. At the time it wasn't expected to see the light of day
until Firefox 7, however it seems that Mozilla has fast-tracked the
feature into its beta Aurora channel
