        and harder for average computers to handle.
        If I let too many DK tabs accumulate, esp the main page, my machine can get real slow.
        The other day I methodically closed DK pages and watched system memory usage. 15-20 DK tabs/pages had eaten up ~3+ Gigabytes of RAM, AND was consuming lots of processor cycles/usage (which in turn affects energy usage as the procs are running near 100% spinning their little gates and raising the temp inside, then the fans kick up the RPM's, etc.). That's effen ridiculous.
        A rich, good-sized webpage used to max out less than 100 Mbytes.
