Must be a lot of browsers and tabs open, but I still wouldn't think that that would use that much RAM. 80 to 90% of 8 GB seems very excessive. I have 8 GB and I can't get higher than about 40% with Visual Studio, and a number of other programs running, including browser pages and tabs. There has to be another issue here that we can't see. Please post the Resource Monitor picture that whs asked for so we can help.
