Chances of eclipse being slow on low heap configuration are high, this is because you are overloading your processor and disk in classic RAM <> Disk swap cycles and CPU processing going on during the same. If this heap falls below a certain level, you might see Eclipse crash with errors like “OutOfMemoryError: Java heap space”.
This post tries to cover a couple of Eclipse flavours/variants and ways to fix performance and memory issues on the same. As Force.com IDE itself is based on Eclipse, so most of the tips apply to Force.com IDE users as well.
How to fix Performance ?

I am no more involved in active development of this button, and strongly believe that it should come from Salesforce only, this is specially *CRITICAL* for the data security reasons of enterprise customers. Based on early feedback I got about this button, major concern raised was
How info-sec team of my org can trust and approve this button regarding illegal use of sensitive enterprise data ?
This point makes sense to me, as this button requires OAuth token access to the org. So, please consider this as a hobby project from my side and I would like to see Salesforce to deliver something like this in near future.
For now, to solve the security point, I am planning to create a browser plugin for the same (stay tuned for more updates !)
Chatter share button is something being asked for since launch of Chatter. A Share button for chatter will basically do the same thing as Twitter’s tweet button or Linked In’s share button does i.e. share a link to the social platform.
Idea to develop a share button for Salesforce chatter was bugging me since Chatter launch, but got a chance to complete this button recently, with huge help from Prateek, he is lead engineer for this button and turned this idea into reality.
