    Any strange Add ons in the browser ?
  2. No, none that I've noticed or used. I watch Hulutv on my laptop alot though, but this started a while after I subscribed. I just downloaded Firefox to see if that will be better to use than Chrome. Thank you.

    That warning can pretty much be ignored -- they have not updated the threshold of what is considered high memory usage and with larger screens and higher resolution videos etc. being used in browsers these days and systems having more RAM installed -- you are going to get that message more often but it should not effect performance.

    The error was mainly designed to warn you if your browser was leaking memory before it became a problem but it needs some adjustments for newer systems since they have more memory installed and the browsers are running more video in higher resolution and thus using more cache memory to store things than when the error settings were originally designed.
