    Whenever I browse the web, it uses RAM which is what apps also use. Any workarounds to get the browser to store data on the memory card or something?

    Are you talking about the browsers cache? I don't believe it uses any RAM, but does use some of the storage space in /data where apps are stored. If your rooted, there is an app on the market to move your cache files to the SD card.

    Ram is necessary for all apps to run, you can't get around that, it's how all computers have been designed for 50 years.
