MemWasher helps you easily monitor and manage your computers memory. You may have noticed how your computer seems to slow down the longer it runs. It is almost as though computers get tired and need breaks.
This is especially obvious with memory intensive programs such as graphics programs. This also applies to internet browsers.
A browser is a simply a graphic display program with additional features for displaying text, executing programs, and submitting information. This means that your internet browser can be just as much of a memory hog as any other graphic display program if not more.
As you surf, your browser accesses hundreds of thousands of bytes of data and renders it on the screen. This data uses physical memory on your machine to get to the browser cache file where it is cached for future use by the browser.
Sometimes the available physical memory gets very low because your browser or other programs are using it.
