    Default system extensions drain resources?

    i read an article about how some extension that work with FF can drain resources and this struck me in awe..because WB supporters claim windowblinds dont consume too much resources




    System extensions

    WindowBlinds can dramatically increase memory use.[2] To continue using WindowBlinds and Firefox without memory issues, add Firefox to WindowBlind's exclusion list.

    Everything drains resources that runs on your computer if you really want to find out how things effect you resources its best to have a look;

    1: Right click on task bar and start 'Task Manager'.
    2: Select 'Processes' tab.
    3: Click once on 'Memory (Private Working Set)'

    Now you can see what is using your resources having the highest first.

    Hope this helps. JR
