So, I have a summary page of some stuff that gets updated through AJAX calls back to the server every 15 seconds or so. However, if you leave that page up for a few hours - it'll slow down the computer and eventually crash it with the following message:

"Internet Explorer: out of memory on line..."

I know AJAX got some memory leaks problems but this is not that much stuff that gets refershed ( a few table rows ).

What can be done to get rid of this problem?
