Fast and bleeding edge Firefox.. version 7

Firefox 7.0 nightly builds have started and it seems to be quite fast. So, if you dont care about some sites not opening or once in a while your browser crashing, been using for 2 days on Windows , has not crashed so far and worked on all sites so far :), then you should install the Nightly build.

Head over to the nightly build site and install the appropriate build for your OS.

With all these now my Firefox process shows only ~130MB memory and decreases to ~12MB when minimized and am really happy with the speed. Also noticeably the CPU used is also quite low compared to Aurora I was using 2 days back 😉
