Google working to fix Chrome’s RAM hogging
Unless you use
the wrong a different browser, you have noticed that Google Chrome loves the RAM in your machine. Finally Google’s development team is aware of this and is working on a fix.
Chrome creates a new process for each tab and instance of the browser open, which can make machines feel sluggish and it does a terrific job of draining laptop batteries. A Chrome for Android engineer said recently “We are actively working on reducing battery usage and we are looking into when Chrome is in the foreground and in the background.”
On the desktop side Google is hunting for memory leaks. “We are profiling Chrome to improve our start-up speed and proactively fighting memory bloat and memory leaks. For example, this year the first gesture latency and mean input latency has decreased steadily.”
