Android webview uses more memory than browser

I’m running a javascript image carousel in Webview, and I load 8 images, some of the images will not load and in logcat, there is

WARNING: tile memory limits exceeded, some content may not draw

When I load the same url in the mobile chrome, it can run fine, up to 20 images without problems. Why is the memory in cocos2dx webview so limited? Anyway to increase it?
