Does Chrome's RAM usage cause problems on your machine? If the RAM is available, I don't see why Chrome shouldn't be taking advantage of it to improve browsing performance.
Have you looked at the hard drive usage of Chrome versus FF? I haven't looked, but it would be interesting to see if Chrome's increased RAM usage results in lower hard drive usage.
Thank you, a thousand times, thank you! If only I had mod points right now!
I'm sick of special code words, and I'm sick of using "service packs" as a replacement for version numbers. "Oh sure, I've got version 4.0 r4 SP2" Gaah!
...but if there's ground for a lawsuit there's probably something morally wrong behind the scene.
Given the litigious culture we live in these days, I'm not sure that's really the case. I agree that to some extent managers need to be careful about the sort of workplace environment they cultivate, but I think it's also important that employees let their boss know if they have some sort of issue with the environment. This was sort of an extreme example, but people can be offended by most any topic, and if being offended is immediately grounds to sue, then we're going to have very, very silent workspaces.
