How does a web page consume resources?

Healer
Does any activity of a web page scrolled out of sight still go on in the background consuming resources? Sometimes I see a banner or some flash commercials or videos and so on, I quickly scroll the area in question out of sight hoping it would stop consuming resources such as memory and CPU. I would even change the size of the browser so that the activity is not visible. Does it help?

I can hear music or talking if there is sound. I suppose any visual stuff should stop because no area in the screen is dedicated to it.

I'm pretty sure all the browsers do this.
Probably need to google where offline mode is in firefox.

Thanks a lot again, Col.

I can see the Network Adapter History has Bytes Sent (Red), Bytes Received (Yellow) and Bytes Total (Green), so the colours are already set. I can't see how I can change the colour, though.

Unless you have the basic version of 7 there should be a Box with ticks on the left of the colors. You add a tick or remove the tick to get those colors shown. I always remove the tick beside the Green Trace all Data as it covers the Sent & Received Traces.

Thanks Col again!

I think I misunderstood what you meant. I thought you said I could change the colours. When I check or uncheck the item, the corresponding traces would show or not show accordingly. So the colours can't be changed but the presence of individual traces can.
