Reclaim Memory in Google Chrome

Quote:
Chrome is a speedy little browser, but that speed comes with a tradeoff: It also eats tons of memory. If you've got plenty of RAM, that may not be an issue; if not, you can reclaim that memory with a simple click.

As Lee Mathews over at Download Squad discovered, the most recent Chrome dev builds come with a command line switch (--purge-memory-button) that, when run with Chrome at startup, adds a Purge memory button to Chrome's task manager.

I seriously... seriously doubt, it uses more RAM than Firefox.

I've seen Firefox use up to ~1.5GB (I'm not kidding).

LOL, i've never had Chrome use any where near that much. Nor FF for that matter, that's some seriously heavy browsing!
