How memory efficient is your web browser?

Ever wanted to know how much memory a particular website needs to load? Here’s a trick to find out – and it will work in either Google Chrome or Mozilla Firefox.

 

Simply type in “About:Memory” as a URL.

 

In Firefox, you’ll then need to press Measure to measure your memory use for each tab. Alternatively, you can press GC and CC (garbage collection and cycle collection) to clear up some memory – handy for when Firefox starts playing up.

 

In Chrome, you’ll automatically get a rundown of the memory use of each process in your browser.
