I like Chrome but it uses more memory than Firefox. Loading up the exact same sites from a clean start..
Chrome uses 149 megs, Firefox is using 115M. This is with 4 tabs each showing techhui, cnn.com, facebook, and gmail.
Which is consistent with my use in the past; chrome always uses more memory. I would say Chrome is generally faster though; albeit on the page loading front. I leave browsers open all the time so how fast they start up isn't a factor for me.
I know Dan, but who doesn't use multiple tabs? That's like saying a car comparison when driving isn't important or something ;)
