Not sure if someone is looking into this issue but in case you keep refreshing the
review -> first question page on StackOverflow you will notice memory increase. I got more than 1GB used by stackoverflow 1 tab only.
Steps to Reproduce: As someone suggested that it is not reproducible on their machine, I tried to reproduce the issue and found it reproducible in new window of chrome.
To reproduce, goto
Review->First Posts page not
Review only and then keep pressing
F5 for sometime. Check windows task manager or chrome task manager. There is significant increase in memory used by tab. (changed from ~50mb to ~150mb in just 5-6 refreshes).
My machine config: Windows 7 (64bit), i5 proc, 4GB ram
Additional details I have configured chrome to reload last session tab on start (not sure if helpful). Also here is the complete chrome task manager capture (tried again to reproduce in new window and successfully reproduced):
UPDATE: I tried to reproduce it on FireFox and it was not reproducible there. First memory goes up to 150MB but after that cleaned up again. Not able to reach even 170 MB. So seems like an issue with Chrome instead of stackoverflow.
