Google perf tools has worked very well for us on desktop as it gives the complete call stack showing how the allocation was made. On device, we use a lot of live object instance monitoring. Anyway it would be great to share some tips and tricks with other folks.

I would love to hear more about it.

Did any of this development work lead to bug fixes for WebKit?

Please note that the meeting in April is for WebKit contributors. People using WebKit but not yet contributing to the open source project should not attend. I mention this because I don’t remember contributions from engineers working at Palm, although I may have missed them.
