How does Internet explorer decide to span a new process for a new browser window?
With the LCIE feature, the Internet Explorer is able to spawn new processes and serve different browser windows with different processes.
How does the Internet Explorer decide to spawn new processes?
I did some tests and observed following behavior:
- With plain web sites, IE usually spawns processes for different domains (when hostname or port of the URL is different)
- IE seems also to obey session cookies and some other stuff
Is there any possibility to force IE spawning processes for browser windows?
You can force IE to spawn a new process for new browser windows created with this command...
"C:\Program Files\Internet Explorer\iexplore.exe" -noframemerging
