Thanks for the info. Do you know of any tools or internal switches to help investigate javascript heap growth? I confess I haven’t hunted through the source yet.

window.performance.memory isn’t telling me much.

Yes, the heap profiler feature was V8/Chrome only. That Web Inspector has also been removed from WebKit.

Is there a way to enable inspector’s heap profiler in WebKitGtk? I’ve tried setting Capabilities.heapProfilerPresent to true in Source/WebCore/inspector/front-end/Settings.js . Didn’t help.

Is it a Chrome-only facility?

Thanks for any help,

(Apologies for the multi-post. I sent this to the webkit-gtk list, but no reply so far)
