I was wondering how much memory one should allot to the browser. I am using IE 5.1.6 version with OS 9.2 and I constantly get "not enough memory" messages.
As a rule of thumb what would be a goodly amount of memory to allot??
How much built-in memory do you have and how much is allocated to EI? (go to the IE application icon and click on it ONCE-go to File Menu and select "Get Info"-go to the drop menu (that says "General Information" )and select "Memory" You can increase the preferred setting there, thus allowing more memory for multiple web pages etc. to be opened without memory warnings)
I've found even in 9, when upping to upwards of 90 megs of RAM, IE still pops up out of memory, and when checking the About this Computer... to show the memory consupmtion, its only using maybe a quarter of the 90 I gave it, so I moved to solely X and Safari. Anyone know why this happens?
I always encounter the same problem aswell.
As Chealion has mentioned, even generously allocating ram still prompts a lack of memory message, even though actual consumption is a fraction of what's allocated. Even having the cache set to zero doesn't seem to help. The only band aid I've found is quiting the browser everyso often during long sessions.
I use IE 5.1 with OS9.1 and have 26 megs allocated to it. I open and use multiple pages at a time and never get a memory error. ( 2 pages of ehMac, an icon site and eBay are common scenarios). In fact, I find it quite stable and quick. Maybe I'm lucky, but I have no complaints with this version. (I prefer OE4.5 for e-mail)
