Chrome Processes


Go to solution Solved by Austin,

Recommended Posts

Lately, my pc is using a lot of resources and when i checked task manager, there were like 10-15 processes of chrome running. I checked and i had like 3-4 tabs opened. Why is this so?

 

I have no idea why this happens, but you're not the only one - whenever I use chrome I have multiple processes in my task manager as well... Maybe it has something to do with Chrome trying to improve performance?

Chrome runs in its own virtualized-sandboxed environment. Because of this each tab, or sometimes set of tabs on the same website, are open in their own process.

This is good for a few reasons. The first one is stability. If a particular tab crashes it won't bring down your entire browser. Secondly, for security. If a plugin on an individual page tries to do something malicious Chrome can block it without interfering with the rest of your browsing experience.

Thank you dexter. I think you are right.

      I like launching Google Docs as a pinned application, like you showed us how to do in this tutorial:
      http://www.groovypost.com/howto/how-to/pin-websites-chrome/
      But I want it to show my starred docs first, not just my HOME folder. There's no settings in Google Docs for that, is there? I looked but can't find one.

      Hi, I know I could probably google this answer but I'm lazy.
      So, I've got a Google Chrome web page pinned to my task bar, and when you launch it, it clears out all the "junk." But then I zoomed out using CTRL mouse wheel and I can't figure out what is 100% zoom (i.e. default). Anyway to temporarily show the settings menu in a pinned Chrome app?

      I just installed the Skype desktop application and it installed a Chrome extension without even asking me if it could. That really ticks me off.
      Is there anyway to block unscrupulous programs from installing plugins/extensions into your browser?

      I haven't ever had to use any type of Google forum. Just trying to access my chrome account on my laptop. When I open chrome to get on the web it is showing me someone else's bookmarks and info, but no one is signed in. If I try to sign in with my account info Google tells me, my account is already running on this computer...I can still get my email on my nexus

      A lot of the programs I have running on my computer came with HTML help files. When the I use the in-program links to open them Chrome just spits out the following error:

      This browser does not display help installed on your local machine. Please use another browser to view the help. For more information, see Chromium issue 47416 (http://code.google.com/p/chromium/issues/detail?id=47416).
      This is super frustrating because I don't know how to set it up so local files will use IE or FF instead, while still keeping Chrome as my primary browser. I would prefer to just use Chrome for everything though. Does anyone have a fix for this?
      [This is running Chrome version 25.0.1364.172 m]
