    Phoronix: Firefox 105 Now Available - Better Linux Performance Under Memory Pressure

    While a number of recent Firefox releases have been rather "boring" on the Linux front with not many notable changes, Firefox 105.0 is out this morning and this time around is a bit more significant...

    Uh, that is what buggs me about Chromium most (I use Chromium only for pages that don't work with Firefox on my work laptop with Debian 11). Very nice. Do we know if these changes are available for Android as well?

      Cool!
      But have they enabled video hardware acceleration by default now?
      Wayland and Webrender is is enabled by default now?
      Or do we still have to enable all manually?
      The update to it is not available yet to test it myself.

        It doesn't look like they are: https://www.mozilla.org/en-US/firefo.../releasenotes/

          Instead of simply finding ways to use less memory, Mozilla gives users solutions to those many times when their browser eats up all of their system's memory.

          Brilliant!

            No, not instead of. Mozilla has invested many years of engineering work into reducing memory consumption of Firefox. They can do both.

                Firefox is both the egg and the chicken. The low memory situation is caused by itself :P The amount of memory it uses per tab is ridiculous.

                  Firefox used to be pretty good wrt memory management. Back then, people were bashing it for not following Chrome and run a JS interpreter per tab. Well, today it does. And people bash it for running a JS interpreter per tab and chewing through RAM, just as fast as Chrome does.
