[Help] Re: help - my Chrome has huge size even at startup and crashes ...
The number of tabs open will affect the memory usage ... it also looks like you have multiple instances of Chrome open too. -- Good judgement comes with experience...Experience comes after bad judgements
Google Chrome takes advantage of these properties and puts web apps and plug-ins in separate processes from the browser itself. This means that a rendering engine crash in one web app wont affect the browser or other web apps. It means the OS can run web apps in parallel to increase their responsiveness, and it means the browser itself wont lock up if a particular web app or plug-in stops responding. It also means we can run the rendering engine processes in a restrictive sandbox that helps limit the damage if an exploit does occur.
Basically, each tab has one process unless the tabs are from the same domain. The renderer has a process for itself. Each plug-in will have one and so will each extension that is active.
1. Click the Chrome menu in the browser toolbar. 2. Select Tools. 3. Select Task manager. 4. If you have an extension or app installed that uses a background page, you'll see an item in the dialog that appears labeled "Background Page".
