If some of you think conky is not accurate then let's ignore it but

As I understand it the "top" object in conky should be just like the

Anyway, lovinglinux, an add-on developer for Firefox and Ubuntu Forum
Moderator has suggested to use "about:memory".
This works in both applications. In Firefox, the vsize and resident
measurements track well with VM-Size and RSS in lxtask.
In Chromium, it redirects to chrome://memory-redirect/ and will even
list other browsers. While this would be a boon for testing, as it
wouldn't require another program to view its memory usage, it seems to
be slightly off (~2-4MB low) in terms of reporting resident usage of
Regarding itself, I'm not too shocked it's off due to the fact that the
memory used to report the memory isn't included. However, even though it
breaks down the various processes, it seems to grossly under-report. For
the main chromium-browser process ("Browser" in about:memory) it's off
by about 20MB; the secondary one ("Sandbox Helper") about 7MB; the
chromium-browse process ("Tab") about 17MB; and the chromium-browser
-type=zygote process ("Zygote") about 7MB. <chrome://memory-redirect/>
So in the end, it's not reliable. And because we can't use tools inside
BOTH browsers to check memory usage, I suggest we forget about using
