Insane RAM memory use

  • Hi
    I have 16 GB of ram and 16 GB virtual memory.

    Since a few months, Opera has started using so much RAM that the system crashes. For 25 tabs it uses 10 GB of RAM. (When going through academic material you need to keep multiple tabs open since each report links to multiple other reports.) Each report is only 1-10 MB but Opera uses almost 400 MB for each tab.

    Why is this?

    How can I remedy it?

  • Check on Opera's task manager which tab is causing the high memory use.
