What is high memory usage by internet explorer Tags: Memory Usage Internet Explorer Windows XP Last response: October 8, 2011 2:36 AM in Windows XP Share teakapo11 October 8, 2011 1:55:43 AM Hello, how do I fix it? More about : high memory usage internet explorer mrmaia October 8, 2011 2:36:44 AM By "high", do you mean how much, with how many tabs open? Something like 30 MB with one tab open is normal, and if you open tens of tabs it can ramp up to 1GB or so.
