Memory consumption of browsers

A reminder that browser are not equal in memory consumption area and a warning about browser extension: they can easily consume huge amount of RAM.

You can test it yourself with some small power shell to sumup memory like this:

$m = ps chrome  | measure PM -Sum ; ("Chrome PM {0:N2}MB " -f ($m.sum / 1mb))
$m = ps chrome  | measure VM -Sum ; ("Chrome VM {0:N2}MB " -f ($m.sum / 1mb))
