Can you give evidence? Maybe uptime statistics with memory usage under some
set conditions? Have you got both version 1 and 1.5? 1.0 could easily eat up
between 40 to 70 MB of RAM when just one window is open (based on rants in
Linux newsgroups). Some say it's due to back/forward caching, as well as
The memory leaks fixes should suggest otherwise, i.e. less memory will be
used over the long run. In fact, the version number indicates that only
minor changes have been applied to the initial release which was 1.5.
