High memory usage for internet expl

Specs: Sp2, p4

For some reason it is showing internet explorer using like 86mb of ram on task manager, and I don't know why. It seems to always be above 50mb, and all I do is just surf the internet.

Is this supposed to be this high? I didn't think it was, but maybe it is, I don't know. Just seems like a lot for surfing the net....

Question: why are you using Internet Explorer?

I'd download a real (and safer) browser like Firefox or Opera (both free!).

IE has a reputation for being a memory hog.

Don't squat with your spurs on!

Use blank page as home and reboot computer. What does it say then.

Could be also add-ons.

I read it wrong and answer it wrong too. So get off my case you peanut.

Firefox and Opera are both resource hogs as well based on my experience. Sorry to say, but there really isn't a choice on web browsers that don't gobble memory.

There is written proof that God created the earth.

Hmm? Opera and Firefox on my Windows machines use
literally 10x. more memory.

Real and safer? Please do explain then why out of those
three, IE is the only one which will politely abide by group
policies, and have the most aggressive security
configurability thru zones.

Awaiting response.

I'd just ignore Alphawave comment. Google revealed HERE that most of this user's 50 or so past thread topics are related to digital photography, and - as far as i can tell - none about browsers.

For anyone interested in reading about FF, IE7,Safari, Flock, & Opera browsers memory usage, see this thread
