Is Firefox taking 314MB of our memory ?

Once my system (with 1GB RAM) went slow, I checked my task manager, this is what i found.

My firefox was taking 314 MB of my memory.

I asked a friend, he said 'No, it takes 500MB+'.

This happens specially when you keep your system on without restarting or logging-off for days - memory leak. You can reclaim your memory by restarting firefox (closing it all and re-opening it).

Some told this issue will be fixed in firefox 3. Cool if that comes true. When is firefox 3 coming ?

I am using linux for browsing

I was using windows xp for browsing internet. My system got all the types of viruses and was literally dancing (All unwanted processes were using my memory and processor). Now I am using linux (Cent OS 4.X) for browsing. Absolutely no disturbance.
