good questions and good points, mate.

all i know for sure is that running win7 with modern FF creates a huge, sluggish memory hog. chrome, by contrast, seems to partition memory much more efficiently, based on what the task manager tells me, anyway!.

i.e., instead of one unified 300meg process running clunky as hell, chrome seems to split every little bit of the tabs, windows and what-all in to separate processes. man, to me that sounds sloppy and distasteful as hell, but what if told you that it actually does seem to work...?!
