    « Making the Browser Migration: Flock to Firefox »

    I never thought I’d do it… switch away from Flock…. but for some insane reason, it’s eating all the memory on my Dell work-laptop. To the tune of over 200,000 bits of memory. Really really. It was so painful yesterday I had to convince a co-worker not to hang up on me in Netmeeting. I could feel his pain.

    And now, it’s the rather annoying exodus of bookmarks and add-ons and settings that need to make the trek to Firefox as well.
    I already miss my little Flock bits. But I can’t take the appetite it has any longer for my memory.

    To the Flock Gods: Please fix the memory leaks!!!

    Hey jules,

    Memory usage is one of the main things we're concentrating on for 0.8.0 and 1.0. I feel your pain, I've been in the same place. We're working hard at it and I hope you'll give us a try again when we reach 1.0.

    I couldn't do it. I couldn't migrate. It just felt wrong. I just remember to close and open Flock a few times a day, and it's ok.... I have been using Flock for a little over a year now, and I am so used to everything. It's better to reboot than migrate.

    Thank you so much for the posting!

    Hey jules,

    Thanks for sticking around. You rock. I promise I'm reminding the development team every day that performance is our biggest issue.

    Flock on!
