I started digging into the code for several reasons. One to actually
develop an instrumented webkit for some specific mobile apps,
The other reason was frustration watching memory usage creep up and
the disk light come on
and being unable to scroll for 10-60 seconds on firefox or
iceweasel. As I realized everything was reference counted,
I became even more confused and now presume that
"wtf" derives from "wtf there is still a memory leak(LOL)".
Now maybe once the leak is fixed page faults will go away,
that is not unreasonable given that spurious junk is
likely to destroy coherence as well of course as just making
everything bigger, but clearly memory usage could use some attention.
I think someone mentioned in regards to memory API there
were many heaps of something. Is there any general documentation
about intentional or unintentional memory neighorhoods that
can get created?
