Yes, it's normal. It's called "multi-process architecture", a design flaw of some browsers that use a new process for each tab and for each plugin, instead of the normal single process for the whole...

There is no way we can know what one do you actually need and what don't. It depends, as you say, on what other programs do you have, as those runtimes do nothing by themselves, but rather are there...

The number of connections is expected to grow with each website you open, they'll be left open for a while, then closed, that's how the web works. I'm pretty sure that's normal. But if you want...

Short asnwer, yes, it's normal, there is no evidence of malware or any other malfunction in the system. I can even reproduce the very same behavior in those websites.

Why a virtual machine to begin with? What's the problem with running said program on the real one?
