Iron runs5 services and takes 200Mb ram

Postby mrbambocha » Wed Jun 23, 2010 10:22 am

Hi.
Wonder what causes iron to run 5 services and take 200 Mb ram when running 2 tabs, google.com and wikipedia.com?
I thought it should take less computer resoures then the other browsers.

Did you install some extensions? Extensions run in seperate processes.

This link should help clear things up
http://blog.chromium.org/2008/09/google-chrome-memory-usage-good-and-bad.html
And several have tested chrome vs firefox and firefox wins the memory test

i was able to have over 200 tabs open in firefox, but in chrome/iron i'm not able to, about 120 tabs in iron but with that many open it gets slow ( lots of memory swapping, etc.. )
sigh.. 2 gb ram is just too little these days :(
