I don't know how the filters are represented in-memory, but pasting the easylist filters to a text editor gave me a file of just 500k...
Is there some work in progress for making the filter subscriptions more memory efficient or are they already efficient as they'll ever be?
More pointedly, the gain in actual coverage will pale in comparison to the gain in memory usage, and false positives will become more numerous and harder to diagnose; issues like these are why both the forums and the main site advise against the practice.Hubird wrote:Also using multiple overlapping subscriptions will increase your memory usage.
