    As a Google Chrome fan, I'd only consider it useful when Google implements their version of it.

    I wonder if the feature could be offloaded to the GPU instead which would be underutilized at that point (for those with dedicated cards).

                 Apple is still the best  thing since sliced bread

    That GPU offset is actually a good idea. Not sure why firefox hasn't implemented it like that but they must have their reasons. I actually had to get another 8 gigs of ram (total 16 gigs) just for firefox as when I am playing Grand theft Auto V Online I am actually running out of ram because firefox using 1.5 gigs of memory alone with just 30 tabs opened. When you have 16 gigs of RAM or more you won't have to worry about browsers taking up ram anymore.

    True. I plan on going to 16 or 32 GB of RAM for my next build as I like to leave multiple Tabs open in my browsers.
