I don't quite understand this preoccupation with browser memory usage. If you're system has 32 gigs of RAM don't you want your browser to use some of that caching frequently visited web pages the same way you want your OS to use some of that caching files? Is this actually something that is causing you problems or are you just looking at the size of the memory footprint and saying "I don't see why it needs that much"?
