Firefox memory and processor consumption in Mac OSX

Firefox, one of my favorite browsers just fell under the category of fat memory and processor consuming beast on the Mac OSX. It is a sad fact, not using it much it can consume easily around 500 MB of memory, and pushing it just a bit makes the processor consumes anything from 10% to 90%.

I use Firefox and Chrome a lot for testing the applications that I”m building and I have always liked Firefox best since Firebug (one of Firefox best extensions) help’s considerably for troubleshooting anything from JS errors to HTML malformed and simple CSS changes.

It is truly sad, but between having my machine overheating and not using Firefox, not using it seems more of a logical decision.
