memory leakage

If you are developing client-side re-usable scripting objects, sooner or later you will find yourself spotting out memory leaks. Chances are that your browser will suck memory like a sponge and you will hardly be able to find a reason why your lovely DHTML navigation's responsiveness decreases severely after visiting a couple of pages within your site

This is a direct quote from javascriptkit.com. of course it goes further
into the subject, Note the "your browser will suck memory like
a sponge"

Could this be one of the problems our latest browser might be having?
I don\t know not that far along yet.

Build 23 and other recent builds do not seem to be using memory excessively. In fact, memory consumption by the Firefox engine appears to be improving as the new builds of gecko are released and incorporated into Avant. The Avant processes themselves (avant.exe and avantvw.exe) don't use much memory at all. Chrome sucks up a lot of memory, and many instances of ybrowser can do the same. Even then, unless memory consumption percentages get into really high numbers, there isn't much effect on how Avant runs.

My studies of C++ makes me wonder if memory leaks is still perhaps the cause

of many of the troubles folks are having with our browser.
