i think the RC1 will be out in more like 2-3 weeks based on the # of blockers left and any regressions from beta 12.

As of posting Can we ship yet? shows 3 hard blockers remain (still may go up though, depending if any major bugs are found), the RC shouldn't be too far away now

Can't wait until the final is here.
How much less RAM usage have you noticed? Because on my computer, FF4 beta 12 is still running at 100MB memory with only one tab, and can go to 200MB with 3 tabs. I have a attached a picture of my task manager.

I regularly run between 350 MB and 500 MB.

It used to get up to 1.2 GB in the early builds of the FF 4.0 betas.

But, then, I usually have 10 tabs on one window and three other windows going with two or three tabs each, too, on multiple monitors.

A lot of the RAM usage you see with the latest builds has to do with how much RAM is installed on your computer to begin with (and whether or not you have x64 or 32 bit) and whether or not all of your extensions (add-ons) are updated for FF4.

I was certainly not complaining that Firefox 4.0b13pre using 161 MB of RAM was a high number.

I think FF should be better and better when it approaches to the 4.0,
but now they did some of the minimal change in the betas,
so it might take more betas to approach to the Final build.

I'm looking forward to the 4.0 build.
