Firemin - optimize Firefox memory usage

Firemin is a small app that eliminates all memory leaks in Firefox and keeps memory consumption at bay. The program runs in the system tray and constantly optimizes Firefox's memory by forcing it to release some of the memory it so greedily hangs on to. Firemin uses a save Microsoft API (EmptyWorkingSet) to force Firefox to release some of the reserved memory without causing stability problems.

There are similar “Firefox memory boosters” available; however, most of them are frauds (work mostly contain spyware and malware) or work using the Placebo function (if you think it will work, it will). Firemin does not contain any malware and actually do decrease Firefox memory usage, up to 95% (under 1MB in some cases). Even though Mozilla keeps claiming that they fixed their memory-leaking issues, it seems like this is not completely true. Maybe one day, but until then, Firemin will lend a friendly hand.

Firemin is a very simple utility and, for this reason, does not demand any installation utility. Simply unzip all files to any folder and run the executable file (usually, "Firemin.exe").

What's new in this version:
- Removed the update option because the Firemin server was getting a little overloaded.
