Browsers use more ram as their cache size increases. It's normal. Android will boot older cached apps out of memory when it needs more space.

Stop worrying and start enjoying your device. It's working as intended.

But as said already... Android/Linux is built to run with a lot of the ram used always. This makes task switching quick and normally doesn't create issue, quite the opposite... Usually makes things open quickly.

But large games that are kept in memory is probably not a great thing.

I Greenify all games and anything else that hurts performance or my battery. But that's a short list on my phone.

I'll give it a go. Thanks
