    Maybe. I do have flash turned on though. I reloaded and tried again, this time the browser took up 68mb of ram... I'm curious why yours is so much different. Granted you are on a different OS. That might be it


    Huge Browser RAM leak issue, how was this never mentioned before?-img_20140921_170552.png

    I also had this issue prior to 10.3, but with 10.3 it's better. I currently have 41 tabs open, 11 of them loaded and opened and closed a few in the meantime.
    I have four other apps open and the browser uses 238MB currently. It uses less RAM when closing tabs but it doesn't quite go down to where it was before.
    It still seems to get a little buggy though when opened for a long time. And I currently have flash disabled as most pages have finally moved on to HTML5.

    Maybe it is Flash... I went to this http://www.volkswagen.co.uk/technology/rollercoaster and now it's at 240mb


    It frees up though. When I close and reopen the browser I'm back down to 23mb

    Thanks. And mine actually kept increasing. I left that CNN page open for a while, it did hit 150mb at some point. Are you happy with the browser on 10.3?

    I'm very happy. I read your comment about it crashing for some people. I haven't actually experienced that at all since the update

    For the passwords, I think it may have to find with the website?
    Some, like banks, don't save the login data

    I remember Berryreview had a post about how to create bookmarklets that let you get around that limitation

    But I do disagree with you on the "leak" statement. Like I said, I can make the browser allocate 400 mb, close all tabs but one, leave it overnight and it still sits at 400. If that isn't a memory leak I don't know what to call it.


    Posted via CB10
    If it was a leak you could keep doing it, forcing the browser to allocate more and more memory until there was none left and the OS switched into a memory critical state and finally either crashed or killed the browser. But since many people use the phone without reboots for months without that happening a leak seems unlikely.

    There is nothing wrong with an application allocating memory as long as it is prepared to react to requests to release the memory.

    Ok... Wow. Just crashed my browser for the first time since I put on 10.3. No joke, I use the thing 10 times a day for the last month or more and never had an issue. Today I post that I've never had a crash and then it crashes, haha. I jinxed myself

    One time a month is nothing.

    I tried several native browsers - Evoolution and Alpha - no luck with them. They don't render one of my portals properly. Same with Opera.apk and Dolphin.apk. Will keep trying.

    Let's swap . Sometimes I wish I could just settle for an iToy and do things the way the iGuru tells me to.

    It is called a memory leak when the memory allocated doesn't get released when no longer required by the app for long time, in some case it continues to eat more. One thing to note here is usually the system doesn't release the memory right after it is released by the app. In an environment such as Java runtime, it only collects the unused memory when system is going out of RAM or after a period of time. I'm not sure about QNX and BB10 but that can be the case. So it is understandable that browser still allocates 300 to 400 MB of RAM after you closed the other tabs and let only 3 tabs open. Unless you close the browser, else, it would only collect these unused memory when it has to do so as explained above.

    You can try to use native browser to open only 3 tabs that you need 24/7, and use another browser app to launch the other websites that you need to reach for short period of time. Or the other way around. Depends on what works best.

    Also, limit your use of the other app to the minimum if you can help it so that it wouldn't eat more memory.

    Private browser, free or paid -- this is what I'd try immediately, because I'd think it's designed to hold content and hold the connection, more than an "any old" browser. My hunch.

    I just searched BlackBerry World for private browser and I saw there are some that are native to BlackBerry 10. Sounds good to me.

    What I can't figure out us why no-one has suggested this before. Maybe my hunch is all wrong.

    Private browsing, and therefore browsers, is about not leaking information about who you are, and where you have browsed before. It is possible that one or more may work for you, but your hunch that as a class private browsers would behave that way is wrong.

    for performance, battery saving and so on...
    But it's only if you open a large number of tabs or if you run other apps that eat RAM. The "memory manager" does it to enhance the life and responsiveness of your phone, that's all
