Speaking of memory usage and Chrome, and maybe it is just me. Open several of your favorite websites in separate tabs in Firefox. Then open Chrome (you shouldn't have to do much, maybe go to Google with one tab). Sit back and watch the fun in Task Manager.
MOST times on my PC BOTH Firefox and Chrome go off into Not Responding and eating up CPU cycles. Looking at the processes tab, Chrome has a bunch running even though it only has one tab open. Kind of like Chrome has knocked Firefox over in some alley and is rifling through the pockets.

I was trying to search & download these for audacity @ Windows.
I'm not sure if I'm the only one lost in the maze. I couldn't find one reliable site that provides these. The re-direction game keeps happening on multiple levels.
And the site that says I can download, looks very much like those evil-warezz site.
Hope these are free libraries.
Even 1 or 2 years ago I was trying to get the audacity extension or whatever you need and I remember landing on the sourceforge site and thinking, "Seriously!?! sourceforge is dead and taken over! Why on sourceforge?"
Unsure why they haven't moved it somewhere a bit more modern.
no idea, I know there was noise about licenses etc which stopped some moving to github (and that was way before ms came into the picture)
and it's still the official site, always rather that then some scammy free downloads site?
(Would you prefer cnet?)
At least you can be sure sourceforge downloads still are truly clean - as compared most other 'free & safe' download sites there's not going to be injected ads/loggers/trojans etc or need to sign up to a junk mailing list.
