Windows 7: How much memory does your browser use?

16 Nov 2010   #31

Windows 7 Ultimate 64 bit

Just checking out the limits & learning the best settings in preference's.
I guess memory is the limiting factor my CPU was only around 12% .
I sometimes get up to 50 tabs open I tend to middle click on links a lot to read later.
Besides Opera 11 is an Alpha build I had a lot of problems with some earlier builds moving toolbars around but this build seems pretty solid.

Well I only have a max of 10 tabs open, but my friend who loves to edit pics(and thus getting a lot of pics on the internet) almost always has 50+ tabs open. For me, its just not right to open a lot of tabs, I mean do you have the capacity to read/watch them all?XD

For me, IE9 uses surprisingly less memory than any other browser under the same conditions. Numbers don't matter much, though, anyway. Loving IE9 more each day ^_^
