Browser eating up lots of RAM!

Hello everyone. This is my first post in this forum. The last couple of days I am facing a problem with my computer. My computer has a bit less RAM, but I do a lot of work on the internet. The problem is that when I work on the Internet with a browser, a lot of primary memory is being used. Because of this, my computer is getting very slow. Friends, can you tell me how to solve this problem? Any help will be appreciated.

Use old Opera 12.18, the last non-Chrome release from 2016. It installs to less than 30 megabytes and it spares CPU and RAM. Be prepared that it may not work with some sites - lots of scripting slows it down to a crawl, sometimes it crashes entirely - and it may require careful configuration - it prefers safety to user experience. It doesn't play most videos, e.g. YouTube. I still use it as my primary browser because I couldn't get to like Firefox much and I especially loathe Chrome.

Thanks for replying. You are absolutely right. Yesterday I did a lot of searching on Google in this regard. There I got the same information.

Not exactly the same information. I'm not talking about the current, Chrome-based Opera (with some astronomically high version number); rather the old, Presto-based Opera, version 12.18.
