    What is it about the below web page that causes the BB browser to use so much RAM?

    Thank you. Why when I close the webpage does it not release the RAM that was previously used?

    OK. I am learning. The browser doesn't really close, so the RAM never gets released.

    OK. Some more learning. The application Force Close is able to shut down the BB browser which in turn releases the RAM. Note the browser does start up again immediately(but the RAM is released).

    The browser will always restart because (if you press and hold the BBbutton to the left of the trackpad) there are ALWAYS 5 programs running, 1-Homescreen, 2-Phone, 3-BBM, 4-Browser, 5-Messages. If you ever want to see what programs/apps are running in the background on your BB, press and hold the BB button. Shut down those that are not in use to preserve battery and memory.

    Menu > Close will close the browser and release the memory it used for the pages it had loaded.

    The red buttom will only take you to the home screen.
