This is way off topic for the list, but...
First, if you can, you might see if you can set the pages not to cache at
all. Any page that doesn't cache should release memory when the browser is
done with it.
Otherwise, assuming you're using IE; then, if you call it as an object you
have full access to the API for controlling and using it. I haven't looked
at the doc's in a long time (and who knows where they are on the MS site
since they've reorganized it yet again), but I would expect that you should
be able to find a method for doing a flush on old pages, or a method for
clearing the in memory cache.
