Fascinating discussion - I never knew Firefox used a different allocator - in fact, I was unaware that any userspace application could use any allocator other than what was provided by GNU libc (on GNU/Linux systems in particular).
When you mention "Google", what exactly are you talking about? I thought Google was a Web site/portal with online applications, not a userspace app running on someone's PC. Do you mean Google Earth? Thanks!
