Another option is to load another application that will require
substantial memory, e.g. photoshop with a sizable image. not that I ever
find such forcing necessary: 8.51 is currently using a modest 105MB for 24
pages (including Java, which contributes about 16MB as soon as you start
it) after running for 13 days.
(Win2K, 512MB). If I had a Gig of RAM, Opera would probably used more, but
I also know that it would cope well if I only had 64MB RAM.
That has been my recent experience as well. Opera tends to
allocate more and more memory to itself over time (and usage,
presumably) and only quitting and re-starting the app seems
able to take the memory usage back down.
