Firefox versus Opera Memory

Firefox and Opera Memory Consumption

Windows Task Manager Screenshot showing the memory consumption of Opera and Firefox (highlighted in yellow).

I got into a recent email arugument with a friend of mine between the memory resources between Firefox and Opera. Well, here is my Winodw Task Manager showing both running processes and the memory that they are occupying. Read it and weep. We are talking about Opera only consuming 25% of the resources that Firefox consumes and not even double what Windows Explorer (the underlying engine for IE) uses. I love Firefox, but it needs some serious trimming. I love Opera, but it needs extensions. Love and hate, give and take.
