Firefox users who likewise prefer a browser with more rather than fewer features (but otherwise want to stick with Firefox) might also consider SeaMonkey, which bundles not just a browser but email, newsgroup client and feed reader, HTML editor, IRC chat and web development tools.

Either that's feature bloat for a Web browser or it's also missing an image editor. I'm not sure which.

The smaller, 500MB pool operates at 1/7th the speed of the 3.5GB pool and thus will lower total graphics system performance by 4-6% when added into the memory system. That occurs when games request MORE than 3.5GB of memory allocation though, which happens only in extreme cases and combinations of resolution and anti-aliasing.

How about giving us the option to either always be able to run at maximum speed (disable that last 0.5GiB) or always let the software use the full 4GiB (at the cost of speed if more than 3.5GiB is required).

The unfacts, did we have them, are too imprecisely few to warrant our certitude.
