Firefox recently made some changes to the memory reporting objects which broke the extension. This is a hotfix to ignore the changes and display only the tab-based data for now, while the completely overhauled v2.0 is in the works.]
This Firefox add-on uses the excellent D3 data-visualization library and data from the native 'about:memory' page to make numbers come to life!
---What you get:
* A new internal page for your browser, 'about:stats'
* A toolbar-button in the browser's chrome, for quick and easy access to the statistics
---What's on offer:
* Live Updates
Data is pulled in real time from the 'about:memory' backend. If that is not your cup of tea, you can disable live updates, which would reveal the option to manually update the numbers.
* Back-in-time Statistics
A time slider is provided, which would allow you to track the statistics through the displayed datasets. Track your improvements or mistakes in time.
* Browser's Internal Statistics
Some times, it's not you, it's them. Not limited to the tab-based statistics, you can request to see the internal statistics by the browser. Reveals all the standard allocations for the browser, in addition to a hierarchical view of all memory used by your particular sessions.
---What's in the pipeline:
* A tracker which would allow you to selectively compare datasets across time
* Ability to store a basic data-dump
* A beautiful page for the beautiful stats
Version 1.0.0 is out. (Hopefully) a lot more to come.
