Windows 7: Opera vs G Chrome?

Hi,
Adding a theme to Chrome only adds more of a resource drain which Chrome already is

All browsers are getting pretty much a resource hog but Chrome takes it too darn far

Chrome (32bit or 64bit) crashes if one of the instances consumes more than 4GB of RAM. For those that want to test that, visit this website A continuous feed of stellar photos we find online tagged #pixlr and hold down the END key. Watch the RAM climb and Chrome crash. IE11 and Pale Moon handle that website without crashing.
Interesting. I don't have Chrome but do have SRWare Iron. I tried visiting that site using Iron and although memory usage did indeed climb - it wouldn't crash.

Memory usage (normal with one tab)

Memory usage after 5 minutes on the site (holding down END key)

I should point out that I have CleanMem running at all times. Also tested All Browsers Memory Zip but it appears not to offer any advantages when CleanMem is also being used.

This is what I see (with or without ABP installed):



ABP is the only extension installed. I see this crash on several different computers.

It took Chrome a minute to crash. I reached posts from 7 or 8 months ago and then crashed. Your screenshot shows posts from 12 ago and not even a GB of RAM. Nice. It does not matter if I go slow (press/release the PAGE DOWN key to view one image/post at a time) or fast (holding down the END key).

I mostly use Chrome for sites that need flash. I don't have Flash installed for IE or Pale Moon.

I see what you mean. I suppose that my test isn't valid. I assumed that Iron would behave pretty much like Chrome!

Well pretty much everyone says to let Windows manage memory. All I know is what works for me. More info on configuration here:

Anyone using a laptop & is concerned over battery life should check out Opera 38 released a couple of weeks ago.

You can enable it on any PC not just laptops to save resources.
