I quickly scan through the news on the home page by opening each article it in its own news tabs from CP24 and thtis would would kill my memory on top of the other actual things I need to keep open and running. CP24 would literally push me over the limit so many times when I would try to speed read through the news.

I guess CP24 would push me to the hard drive memory part which is also concerning because if it gets to that point the Computer hangs and I literally cannot do anything on the computer (even my keyboard RGB lights lag)!

Yeah, that's how I often browse sites, as well, such as RFD: one tab for the forum index, a second tab for the sub-forum, and then each thread I'm interested in as a new tab.

holy smokes, I never used more than like 3gb ram, but by reading this post I open a few CP24 tabs like OP can't believe how much ram CP24 takes up. Without CP24 I can open like 30 tabs of webpages raging from everything and it only used like 4gb, luckily I have 6gb on a 10 year old machine, lol

I wonder if it's Chrome's implementation of something; I use Opera, and opened a few CP24 tabs, and browsed random pages, and they're not using anywhere near 700MB of RAM.

Not trying to be a smart butt, I had same issues with Chrome locking up or slowing down with several tabs/windows open. Got fed up and switch to Firefox. No issues now.
It's a thin line that separates a gourmet from a glutton.
