Sometimes, just links2, sometimes konq.  I ususally use Xfce but have
tried it with just rxvt, pdmenu, then links2 or konq.  Try this site:


Then click on "Our Team".

I don't know what's with this site but all of a sudden Xorg starts
racking up the memory.  When I leave the site, the memory footprint
doesn't shrink.  Eventually, I just exit X and startx again.  Not that
it thrashes, but...
Wow! That site doesn't half hammer the RAM. On my Gateway P111 500Mhz machine 
with 250MB RAM, gkrellm normally shows about 190MB free (no swap used).

Going to the site started to hit the RAM. It was up and down like a yo-yo, 
dropping as low as 11.1MB free, and with frequent freezing of gkrellm.

Clicked on "our team", and the RAM got hammered again. Big freezeup of 
gkrellm, then the page was loaded, and free RAM levelled out at 84MB. That 
means that 110MB of RAM is being used to view the site. There has to 
something wrong with it, surely.


    I was curious so I clicked the link, nothing unusual no ram-sucking
on my machine. I am running Sid.

FWIW, I can concur with Frank here. I checked with both Konqueror and IceWeasel and there was nothing unusual. I agree there was a quick tug on CPU resources, but that passed rapidly. Otherwise, no anomalies.
