    Question Memory usage Froyo

    Is it normal for the stock browser to consume 51MB and Email 47MB?

    I ask because I have less apps installed on froyo but I am getting the low on space notification.

    I thought froyo was supposed to have more memory available, 256MB right? Linda file manager is reporting Applications 192M/196M 98%.

    Thanks

    Try clearing the Cache in your browser to reduce its size. I have to clear it out about twice day. Its in your application settings for the browser or you can do it from the settings menu in the browser.

    My browser cache says 0 and the button is grayed out.

    It seems my browser was not working properly and I was somehow able to close it and the memory usage dropped to 3MB.

    FroYo makes more RAM available, not more ROM.

    From http://homeitinnovation.com/new-feat...o-android-2-2/
    New Linux Kernel
    A new version of things like this are good for some reason security, stability, performance, etc.. The latest version of the kernel actually uses less RAM. This will have a positive impact on your cell phone.
