So my browser has been using 1.2 gigs of ram and 15% cpu. I only have one tab open. is that normal? it seems high to me, if so does anyone know why its doing that?
browser. that's a real case of dyslexia right there.
Lots of open tabs = eat lots of ram plus if you are useing a microsoft browser thay snort ram like Charlie Sheen on a night out.
1.2Gb?? That is a lot for your browser to be using. I have Chrome open and it's using less than 100MB sitting on the forum page. That is the only tab i have open in Chrome as well. I have a i7 2700k and 16GB RAM. Which I don't think matters to much. Sounds like you have a lot of backgroud browsers open.
what do you mean background browsers open?
Chrome uses all of my RAM lol. 1.2GB for a single tab is a bit much though, if you have plugins that will eat RAM and if you have been using that single tab for a while that will also eat RAM(Chrome is pretty aggressive with the caching, I have PurgeTab to help with this).
My prowser doesn't use RAM or my CPU... Just eyes lol
Chicken Parm you taste so good.
Seems very high to me, I've got iceweasel 38 running with a few extensions on the forum here pegged at 231mb
I have had similar issues only with chrome, i had about 1.6gb ram usage with 3 tabs open....
But switched to Firefox and the problem went away.
Maybe swap for a while and come back in a month or so to chrome to see if they fixed the memory leaks.
When I am using it I want my browser to use all my memory and all the CPU it needs to give me fast adblock free content. I expect no less from my system than attention to what I want. Fuck systemd and the world... I want my internet !
