Big list of resources on Javascript memory

Finding resources to help you when you're trying to fix a memory problem can be a real pain. There's no central source of knowledge, information is scattered everywhere and a lot of the articles are already outdated.

So, I tried to compile a list of articles I found useful and tried also make it clear when they were written, to bring the recent information up front :) Don't skip some of the older videos & articles though, they're still packed with good stuff.

Hope you find this useful!
