When I view windows task manager while browing the internet with internet explorer iexplore.exe seems
to increase in size at a fast rate. Sometimes it will be idle and only increase in small amounts.
but other times I will see the memory usage go from below 10,000- to over 100,000 in memory usage.
At one point I had 5 webpages minimized and one open while checking the task manager..the memory
usage was locked in at 250,500. When minimizing an open webpage I can see the memory usage taking
a big drop. but after the drop...the memory usage climbs back up increasing to around
70,000. (different numbers each time) At times it can look like an update is occurring with
the way the memory increases. At the moment I have two webpages opened with one minimized
and the memory usage is idled at 72,6000.
