you mean super bloated alternative browsers like chrome and firefox. You know ones, where you only have two extensions but yet still uses over 400MB of memory.

I agree memory usage is a crucial point. But the guy makes a valid point about better experience. People have reasons more than memory usage for using a particular internet browser, like its speed (alright this is virtually same across all major browsers) and features. You don't use a browser just because of low memory requirement unless it is the only browser your machine can run.TNT27 :Memory usage isnt everything.
Its just a better experience with those types of browsers.
memory usage is a great part of what makes a browser. Especially when you work on stripped down machines that barely have any resources. Next thing you will say is that it is not about speed either.
As an example, surface pro 2, with nothing running besides windows and 4 tabs open in chrome, you get a physical memory low event in windows. Surface pro 2 has 4GB of memory. I don't want to even get into firfoxe and how that browser handles memory.
How about computers at work that still run on 2GB of memory. Your upcoming argument of, time to upgrade is irrelevant as there are old system still being used today providing you with services you use every single day. Which I have plenty of examples of.
At least Microsoft is doing something to make a browser better. You don't just use IE to download an alternative browser. Such a minimalistic view.
You're not lying. I'm using chrome and I have 4 tabs open, I have toms plugin, google, voice, abp and google hangouts installed and right now chrome is using about 640mb across several threads according to task manager. It doesn't matter as I have 16 gigs, but it is a very fat browseryou mean super bloated alternative browsers like chrome and firefox.

Yup.. those ones right?
