That's one reason I moved to Chrome, but honestly I'm not sure Chrome is much less of a resource hog.

I found out through our company's IS guy that while Firefox takes up a lot of resources, each of Chrome's tabs and active add-ons also does the same.

I like chrome and if it had all the add ons firefox has I'd probably switch.

Just started up my pc this morning and I'm at 328 MB... Usually it crashes when it gets to 1.5GB, not sure how that happened yesterday.
