Minimize high memory usage

Recommended Posts

Windows 7 sp1 x86

4GB ram



In the screen shot maxthon is consuming more than 800 mb of memory with 6 tabs open in different web pages.


Thanks for reply.

Those are not Mb, but Kb and if you look at that bottom line, it's only 10.98% of your CPU usage.

They are Kb, but there's 151,280 of them in one process = 151mb.


And he's not worried about the CPU usage, although ~10% says to me there's something like a video being played.


As far as minimising usage there's not much that can be done. You can try disabling ABP, but you'll lose ad blocking. There aren't any extra options to disable or modify to try and drop it.

ABP is the memory hog. The usage in the screenshot is nominal. I have figures of 700,000 and 400,000 routinely on any one of the six or seven modules while running over 100,000 on most of the rest. The problem is that that memory is not diminished and given back to the system when tabs are closed. You can turn ABP off and install Ad Muncher to help with Ads. Ad Muncher is now a free application.
