    I'm running w98se, have 512mb ram. I recently noticed a problem(?). Using 'TuneUp Utilities', I looked in their System Info/ Memory area and noticed that one particular Browser window (for MyEbay/Summary) was using 220mb memory. I closed that window, then re-opened the same MyEbay window, it was then using only 40mb memory. It seems the longer this particular website stays active in IE, the more memory it uses. After 16 hours, it's now using 160mb, after 30hrs, it's using 220mb. This seems to be the ONLY site this is happening in-but I'm currently checking others. Any words of wisdom? Memory problem? I can't believe this is normal behavior. Thanks.
