Default will this RAM increase my performance?

I know this is a silly question, but I'm going to ask it anyway. I have 512MB of RAM at the moment on a 2.6ghz computer. I know for one thing that upgrading my RAM will increase my performance on gaming. However, I also want to know about my non gaming performance. Usually when I view the task manager in windows, it says I have about 100 to 200 MB of memory available.

1) Is this correct: Getting more RAM will probably not increase my performance on simple web browsing or document editing?

2) Will getting more RAM help windows load faster?

3) Will getting more RAM help me multitask faster, even though the task manager might still say I have available memory?
