I am running a script that runs randomly the browser and music.After 7-8
instances of browser getting opened I see the following error :-

D/AndroidRuntime(  992): Shutting down VM

Is it possible to open the browser windows consecutively for 10
mins.Secondly why does the background process get killed?

 i All,

When i run the browser StartActivityLocked() is called which runs the
activity with some pid. If i open 4 browser windows on UI for each instance
the same process is called (as noted from pid).Does the memory get allocated
for each window? If this process goes
into background state and the foreground process needs memory how the memory
handler works?
