Which web browser has the least memory utilization

web-browsersThere must have been time when your system resources gets exhausted and the system  gets struck or hangs up.
In order to solve this problem we need to close the running applications or sometimes needs to do an abrupt shutdown.
Have you ever tried to find out the reasons for this problem.
There are many reasons for this problem:
Modern Web browsers are one of them
Firstly what is a web browser?
A Web browser is a software application that interprets the coding language of the World Wide Web and allows for retrieving ,traversing and presenting the information.

Web browsers
 utilize a lot of memory which contributes to increased response time.
So what to do..we cannot stop using them ,and only what we can do is select the best out of the many market’s web browser , which includes internet explorer, firefox , opera,netscape and many more.
Some tests were carried out by using browsers in similar condition and checking their memory utilization in MB which helps you to choose the best web browser.
The results were plotted on the graph with memory utilization (MB) ox horizontal-axis and browsers on the vertical axis.
So it proves the sluggishness of internet explorer and reasons for why to use firefox and opera.
New Firefox 3.5 RC 3 is even better then opera and its other compilants.
But what surprising is that still the major part of the world follow internet explorer.
I hope this article might give them something to think and boost their system performance.
