[ubuntu-za] Controlling Memory Hogs on Ubuntu

Is there any way to control the amount of Ram an application uses? Can I 
restrict individual applications like Firefox, and stop them from taking 
over all available Ram? I remember this was one of the features of the 
Apple desktop, but it seems to be unavailable for Linux?
