Also asked, what is heap profiling?
Heap profiling is useful to help you reduce the amount of memory your program uses. It can speed up your program -- a smaller program will interact better with your machine's caches, avoid paging, and so on. If your program uses lots of memory, it will reduce the chance that it exhausts your machine's swap space.
What is a memory leak in Chrome?
