Comment Interesting technological support (Score 1) 135

We all know that from a technological point of view we should be satisfied. But don't you think we should spend some time in "spreading the word" and teach people that encryption should be considered in our life as a concept? Until we don't let people understand how important encryption is, all those tools out there will just waste space on hard drives. I think the culture of encrypting documents and communication in general is missing. Until we don't have that culture all the technology that already solves the problem is useless... or better... unused.

Memory Usage of Chrome, Firefox 3.5, et al. 505

An anonymous reader writes "This experiment graphs the memory usage of Chrome and Firefox 3.5 (along with Safari and Opera) over a series of 150 Web page loads using an automated script. Firefox 3.5 shows the lowest memory usage in all categories, including average memory usage, maximum memory usage, and final memory usage. Chrome uses over 1 GB of memory due to its process architecture. Safari 4 and Opera show memory usage degradation over time, while Chrome and Firefox 3.5 are more reliable in freeing memory to the OS." IE 8 was not included "because the author could not find a way to prevent it from opening a new window on each invocation of the command."
