>From our testing, some pages (like espn.com) waste up to 3-5% of
WebCore's total memory storing 8-bit-encoded strings in 16-bit
We've started investigating changing our String class to store
8-bit-encoded strings in 8-bit buffers when possible (reclaiming all
this wasted memory).
double-byte-ness of strings in the DOM and 2. our String classes tend
to be very performance sensitive. We're proceeding with caution. :)
If anyone would like to follow along at home, they should CC
themselves on the bug:
