Cool! I'm excited to try it out.You just need the same Firefox profile(which include all your history, addons etc), and also same Windows, then install Memchaser.
As for the GC -- how did you do those tests + comparison? Were there tools you two used?
I'd like to do that test on my own machine!
For testing, I think opening some website that having heavy JS(Gmail is a good choose, YouTube too), or just opening many same website/tabs that will increase the memory, when it increased to similar amount of Memory(at least 500MB), click on Memchaser(you may need to click the hamburger menu-customize, and put it on the addon bar etc.), click "Reduce Memory".
It will showing GC:XX.X ms, which is mostly happen when you are closing heavy JS tabs.
Then just browsing normally(like me typing now ),after a few seconds, it should be showing iGC:XX.X ms, and this is mostly you wanna care about.
If you are interesting about lower Memory usage will getting what result, just open the Firefox, then click on "Reduce Memory", and see how much the GC time is.
And ya, by switching to Windows 8+(If you are using Intel CPU), you should seeing some performance increase too.
