valgrind

A new tool to extract meaningful memory consumption values. Valgrind shines again.

Every program allocates memory, regardless of its size. Reducing it is an important task and an eternal struggle. Using advanced memory profiling tools, it is easy to see that the most memory is consumed by ... hash tables, vectors, unicode strings, mmaped memory regions, etc. But is THIS what you are interested in? Isn't it would be better to know how much memory consumed by WebCore, JavaScriptCore, Qt, or by a particular component, like WebCore/css?
