    It was intentional. I never have more than about 5 tabs open. More if I'm doing an assignment.

    Anything past dual-core and 1GB memory is overkill at the moment. Phones shouldn't need more guts unless the OS/Programs are very inefficient.

    I think I am one of these people that would never leave that many tabs open...


    Now, I wonder when we'll see an octo-core Windows Phone 8 handset with 2 GB of RAM

    Would that be absolute overkill?

    One funny thing is most browsers also scales memory usage with the total amount of system RAM. IE will also stop splitting processes after a set number of tabs if it's a bit too many - depends on the system resources.

    Haha, I wouldn't know how much Safari or Chrome use on iOS, as you don't get any sort of Status Monitor. There's a hidden force-quit system, but that's it.

    On the desktop side of things, I've used Chrome for 3 days without closing any tabs to see how much memory it uses. With about 40 tabs open, it was using 3.5GB memory on my Macbook. The with everything else open, I was using 6.2GB RAM. Who says more than 4GB is a waste?

    Still doesn't stop them from chickening out on 800 MHz and 90 MB of app usage RAM.

    On system with 256 MB of RAM, that's all you're getting for an app

    Night, huh?
    Efficient code on Windows Phone usually means relying on the GPU a whole lot more that its contemporaries.

    It also started with the only version of Internet Explorer 7 with HWA.

    Forces them to have efficient code, I guess. Good night.

    A 1.5 GHz single core is the maximum.

    Nah, I'll probably just go to the nearest Telstra (our main telco) shop and try them. Keeping the iPhone until the iPhone 5 comes out, when my contract will be over and I can renew.

    Is WP7 still limited to single-core?

    And you might want until HTC comes out with with a quad-core Windows Phone 8, by the way. Or Nokia. Whoever is faster.
