UPDATE: Oh, and while I'm bitching and moaning, a request to my fellow bloggers: Could you please put your YouTube's below the fold? When a page has 10 or 15 youtubes on the front page, it locks up IE solid for about ten seconds, or twenty, or even more while all of them load. You can't click anything; you can't even kill it.

1 My anime top 40 page has 40 Youtube videos embedded.  I use it as a browser / PC torture test; in Chrome it takes 1GB of memory to load.

2 I haven't been paying attention to memory use because my computer has 12G of RAM. But I'm not surprised that this also chews RAM like mad.

It's probably important to put the BBCode tags method in to the main post.  The method you posted doesn't work for me.  I get the link window up, but none of the buttons do anything, including the button to dismiss the window.

I think some of the comments discuss how to get around that by hard coding, but it's something you have to hunt for.

4 I have a similar problem with gifs.  A forum I frequent recently added gif support.  This, in itself, is not a bad thing, most of the gifs posted are relevant and amusing.

The problem is when there are 20+ of them on a single page.  Then the browser crashes to a halt for a while when the page loads.  And its very easy to end up with that many, since almost no one edits the gifs out of their quotes.

5 The most annoying thing on the Internet is a site that uses dynamically-generated infinite scrolling and posts a lot of animated GIF videos (also known as "2/3 of Tumblr"). No browser can survive long, and when it eventually is forced to reload the page or crash, there's no way to get back to what in a sane universe would have been "page 37".

Speaking of which, has anyone else noticed that Tumblr is having trouble reliably serving up the images they host? It's gotten to the point that at certain times of day, cheesecake Tumblrs sometimes load only about a third of their pictures for me.
