I have to use a Pentium E5400 with 2GB of RAM to code and it's almost impossible at this point.
I mainly do web development stuff and oftentimes a tab ends up eating too much memory and thus rendering my computer useless--not even the cursor moves.
I recall that Windows prompted you to force close the program when that happens; I do know that there is
xkill but I can't even access the terminal. Usually, I have to reboot my PC 15 times a day.
I can't upgrade because of financial issues. Is there a way to automatically kill a program when it uses too much memory so at least I won't have to reboot my PC?
