mostly buffered and cached pages, if you set the browser to never cache anything to memory then you can drastically reduce browser RAM footprint.


edit: an analogy to this is loaded textures on the GPU's VRAM, most games now a days keeps a set so that they can minimize load time.
you can configure it in a way that it won't preload or cache anything to RAM, at the cost of fetching all the data from the server every time it loads.

trolling an adult is very dangerous, don't try it at home nor at work. you don't want to play tag with a rabid man.

Oh really?

Take a trip down memory lane and recall in a bit more detail.. they're getting slower and slower (taking longer to open, occasionally not as 'snappy'/responsive, odd semi-"hangs", footprint, etc. etc.).
Lest one compiles one on their own, with all the bloatware and "ease of use"/"QoL" left out?

For all the advancement in the last two decades, the empirical result? Outcome? Is one of regression.

/que all the people using 284645262819 addons, "needing" them integrated, all in one package and having 585625412 tabs open (or expect to be able to) disagreeing fervently.

Speed and bandwidth should not be confused with browser performance.

Pride, honour and purity.

Lol yea, for all our advancements in computing power stuff ends up loading slower as we add more bloat to it.

Literally loading 15 discussion groups on my 56k with an IBM Aptiva was faster than my internet connection now with the computer I have in my sig.
