    It doesn't seem excessive to me. Web browsers are known to eat a lot of memory, in particular if you open many tabs. You still have about three quarters of your memory available.

    Hmm, I don't know about memory management on ubuntu, which I found strange is the system starting with 900MB on a raw xfce, and I also noticed that the kernel doesn't consume caching nor swap so for me it's very good because I don't like it when use swap.
