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 7 brings:
 - Compatibility with recent Firefox versions.

Verdict:

A simple way to find out more about Firefox memory usage

Ashampoo Burning Studio 2013 (v11.0.6)

Free Full Commercial Software

Ashampoo Burning Studio 2013 is a compact, simple, but surprisingly feature-packed disc burning suite.

The program makes it easy to create simple data discs and audio CDs, for instance: just drag and drop your files onto the list area and you'll be burning the finished disc in a couple of clicks.

That's just the start, though. Burning Studio 2013 can also create data discs with customised, interactive multi-page menus, perfect if you'd like a more professional way to share and present the disc contents.

A built-in backup tool allows you to create backups which may be encrypted, compressed, and span several CDs, DVDs and Blu-rays.

And there are modules to create VCD or SVCD video projects; burn video DVDs or Blu-ray discs from prepared folders; create, browse or burn disc images (ISO, CUE/ BIN and Ashdisc formats are supported); copy discs, erase them, design and print disc covers, labels and booklets, and more.

The focus throughout is on ease of use, though, and so Ashampoo Burning Studio 2013 remains very straightforward, whatever you're doing. Most disc projects are created via the same simple interface, and for the most part all you have to do is drag and drop the necessary files. But experts will find more advanced options are only a click away, and if you need to then you can set ISO and UDF version, enable Joliet, make a disc bootable and more.

Note the download here will take you to the Downloadcrew Software Store where you can download Burning Studio 2013.
