Watching system usage, it blows my mind how much differently programs work. Right now Vivaldi has over sixty tabs open (way too much, even for me), and Task Manager shows ~1 GB. Firefox only has 3 tabs open, and it is at 1.8 GB. Even though 2 of those are for Facebook, the difference still seems staggering.

Just for curiosity's sake, I shut down FF, and reopened it. Without clicking on any other tabs, it still shot up to the same memory usage as Vivaldi. Clicking on the other tabs took it up to 1.2 GB, and scrolling FB quickly added another 100+ MB to it.

I see many people praising FF, but I still remember the old problems with it, including ever-expanding memory usage. It doesn't seem like the underlying memory usage has really been addressed, even after all these years.

Out of curiosity, I opened Vivaldi in Windows Sandbox, with the same 3 tabs. The memory usage was half that of FF. Firefox, I do wish you well. But it would be nice to see better engineering behind the scenes.
