How much RAM are your Firefox addons using?

About:addons-memory is a simple Firefox extension which tells you how much RAM your various addons are using.

If you want to explore Firefox's memory use then you could always enter about:memory into a new tab, but the report you'll see is highly technical, with details about heaps, compartments and so on. This extension is far more straightforward.

Installation is quick and easy (there's no restart required). Once it's done, open a new tab, type about:addons-memory in the address bar and press Enter for the details.

What you'll then see is a list of extensions sorted according to their RAM use. The "Memory" figure tells you how much RAM each addon is using; "Addons" gives this figure as a percentage of the total memory used by your extensions, and "Explicit" gives the figure as a percentage of Firefox's memory use.

Scroll down to the bottom of the list and you'll find a "Minimize memory usage" button, which may be able to free up a little RAM, while a couple of notes explain more about the report.

Version 10 brings "compatibility fixes" (Full Version History).

Verdict:

A simple way to find out more about Firefox memory usage

WhatsApp Messenger 2.16.4

Free Full Commercial Software

WhatsApp Messenger is the world's most popular instant messaging app for smartphones.

You can use it to send and receive text and voice messages, photos, videos, even call your friends in other countries, and because it uses your phone's internet connection it might not cost you anything at all (depending on whether you'll pay data charges).

It's easy to set up and use. There's no need to create and remember new account names or pins because it works with your phone number, and uses your regular address book to find and connect you with friends who use WhatsApp already.

You can talk one-to-one or in group chats, and because you're always logged in there's no way to miss messages. Even if your phone is turned off, WhatsApp will save your messages and display them as soon as you're back online.

There's plenty more (location sharing, contact exchange, message broadcasting) and the app is free for a year, currently $0.99/ year afterwards.
