    Since I have installed IE7 on my laptop (XP Pro - SP2 - 1GB RAM), my fan
    hasn't stopped kicking in every few minutes which usually happens when my CPU
    runs high.

    I eventually found out that IE was using over 200MB of RAM when doing a
    search on Ebay and browsing through the various items. This is now a regular
    occurence where it forces me to check how much ram is IE taking.

    At least 60 MB for a browser instead of 25 in IE6
