I was referring to while I'm still surfing
Say I have 3 tabs open and close 2 of them the other 2 or at least one would stay showing in processes

Closing all it wouldn't do it
I do delete on exit and it's always been okay I do use tfc.exe periodically to get rid of anything that might not of been removed usually it removes 0 bytes.

Maybe has something to do with early tab isolation... If I'm not mistaken IE was the first one to adopt this, and was prone to have lot's of bugs with multiple processes handled by a main one...

My best bet on that

This thread came to mind today when I closed IE11 while it had a dozen or so tabs open. Each with fairly busy/complex websites. Unexpectedly, IE left RAM in a second or two.


Not that most users would ever had need of this info, but:

IE11 gets a bit flaky around 1100 64bit tabs on W7 pro 64bit with 8GB of RAM.

Pale Moon 25 (64bit) works (ever so slowly) with 4000+ tabs. It was using 12GB of RAM and about 20GB of the swap file on a W7 pro 64bit system with 16GB of RAM. I had a problem with RDC/RDP and the help desk was convinced that the issue was simply that the computer was busy. Well, 4000 tabs - each hitting an internal website that auto-refreshes a large table of data every few minutes - sure kept the computer "busy". FYI: "busy" was not the problem.


There are still some things that IE can do that no other browser can do. Most notably for me is the ability to run scripts (text files) on the Favorites bar. IE was designed to allow other apps to communicate with it. Some of my scripts do just that :-)

Sounds pretty silly to have that many tabs open.

When one is dealing with an in-house "help" desk staff, one does silly things :-)

I've not had any use for that many tabs since that testing.

Is there a stress test app that maxes out the CPU, uses lots of RAM, the swap file and network traffic?

If anyone likes to experiment with Firefox and don't want to use Nightly builds, you can enable this:
Code:
layers.offmainthreadcomposition.testing.enabled (set it to true)
browser.tabs.remote.autostart (set it to true)
dom.ipc.processcount (change the value to something rather than 1, I'm currently using 24)
Restart Firefox, and check in about:support that multiprocess windows says 1/1

The first two enable Electrolysis, but the last one enables process per tab ala Chrome, the bigger the number, the more processes Firefox will create (matching any number of tabs you may open), meaning 5 tabs = 5 processes.

The extra processes are called "plugin-container.exe", just as the normal plugin container process is created for plugin isolation (for example, when Flash runs).

Let's hope this is stable enough, I'm using this right now, the only issue I've found so far is that, when you increase processCount to more than 1 is that the print button in the hamburger menu, it doesn't work as spected, instead you need to use Ctrl+P to print something...

Happy testing :P
