Which browser actually uses the least amount of RAM?
I would like you to know your opinion and share your experiences
I use Microsoft Edge myself and sometimes Firefox
---------------------
But recently When I use Chromium browsers After 10 Or 15 min(I tested), when there are 5 or 6 tabs open, my RAM Usage reaches 100% and the computer hangs...
I do not have a virus problem, I feel a bug and a problem with Chromium products

Like @Filipe said, you need to install the F-Secure extension in your browsers to use the full potential of F-Secure Safe.
Can be done from within F-Secure Safe.
You can make the AdGuard extension a bit lighter by using optimized filters and disabling checking for malware.
Try Opera and see if that solves your problem with chromium-based browsers.
If that works you can see if you can find a possibly misbehaving extension by disabling them all and activating them one by one in your other browsers.

you should post 2 screenshots when it nearly happens
1 is your task manager with all chromium's processes
2 is chromium's built-in task manager so we can see who causes it

I'm using chromium too. I have never experienced what your said and I have more extensions running

the common culprit I can find is facebook page, after you visit pages/groups which contain a lot of photos. The browser easily reaches 1-2GBs of RAM in very short time -> workaround: close the tab and re-open it after 10-15mins

For me, on an i3 laptop with 4 GB shared RAM, Slimjet (portable 32-bit) by far uses the least memory, seldom more than 350 MB. MS Edge is a close 2nd. Firefox (portable 64-bit) uses the most memory, but since v. 89 has improved greatly. Each browser has about 10 add-ons (mostly the same ones) and typically 5-6 tabs open.

I find the worst offender for memory use is 500px, followed by Flickr.

For me it really doesn't matter as 99% of the time I have 2 or less tabs open, just use what I like best and for now thats Chrome.
A lot of people tell me Chrome is "memory-heavy," but when I used it I found it to be pretty light, even with 64-bit. The only real RAM hog I've used is Firefox, which unfortunately is the only browser that I can customize 100% to my liking.
