Memory limits.

*If* there is a limit, which I'm sure there is, it would be platform
specific since the JavaScript engine runs differently on each OS.  Note also
that the frames themselves are have terrible memory management in 2.0.
Windows NT handles memory problems *much* better than Win3.x, and thus the
problem you're seeing.  I remember a post in the Netscape Developers group
that had something to do with size of code.  I'll look it up and get back to

BTW: The fact that some people can run their banners (seemingly)
indefinately on their Win95 machines with 24MB of RAM is no suprise.  It's
Joe Average that loads a page with a few Java Applets and a poorly written
scrollbar that is sacraficied to the memory Gods.  Lets try and remember
that were at the forefront of technology and can't Joe AOL to be *anywhere*
near us.  To address the Monitor Poll that's been taken, I think it would be
smartest to assume 640x800 with 256 colors.
