Not All Browsers Are the Same
27 Feb 2009
As part of my 3rd party service development plan for my company I make recommendations for external systems that my company should be using for its operations. We don't buy or develop everything internally. There are some amazing 3rd party applications.
A couple notable ones are:
- Gmail / Google Apps for Your Domain
- Google Docs
- Google Calendar
- Email Center Pro (ECP)
Most users are using IE, but a few use Firefox. Memory leaks become a major problem. People's machines slow to a crawl and many times just lock up. I can people complaining and worried applications or their machines.
I left these open all night:
- Firefox started at about 50K and grew to 480K by morning.
- Chrome started at about 50K and reduced to 46K by morning.
All without usage? I am leaving open all day to see what happens next.
