I saw that myself after posting. Sorry, a small typing error.
Here again
Mozilla Firefox, Google Chrome or Microsoft Internet Explorer - Which Web Browser is Most Secured? | Accuvant

I'll also correct it in my first posting above.

PS. Rather strange. I typed in the same web-page address but the way it appears here is different.

Some additional information to be fair.

The work was done by Accuvant in July 2011 and Firefox as well as Google say
they have since acted on the issues reported by Accuvant.

Here's the thing - These browsers were tested using no add-ons, just the bare install. With Chrome consistently running at over 200,000k on my system, I could install an antivirus with sandbox, adblock, noscript and still not hit that amount of memory with Firefox. There's no reason a browser should have to use that much memory. My firefox is armed to the teeth and only uses about 50,000k on a busy website.
