On a old machine (512 MB RAM) I am currently running ubuntu jaunty and firefox 3.0.15. I tried the ad blocker addon add block plus but it eats lots of RAM (>300 MB).
Is high memory load of this add-on a bug, which is fixed in a newer version or just normal? If so, why is the memory usage so high?
Is there another ad blocker add-on for firefox, another browser- add-on combination for linux (ubuntu jaunty) or even better a browser independent solution for linux which uses significant less RAM?
