Mozilla announces the release of the Firefox 3 codenamed Gran Paradiso. This in no way represents a finished product.
There are still major issues. I haven’t had any stability problems, but there are bad memory leaks. Gran Paradiso, as Firefox 3 is code named, launches using about 33mb of RAM; after ten minutes of browsing that number jumped to 100mb and after a couple of hours it was close to 400mb — and that’s with no extensions installed.
Gran Paradiso Alpha 2 is being made available for testing purposes only, and is intended for web application developers and testing community. Please use at your own discretion.
