Google Chrome is one of the best browsers in the world, may be the best browser around, but it eats up your PC’s RAM like a King.
If you have ever looked at your task manager, you can probably see number of chrome processes and memory they use.
Here is why chrome uses so much of RAM
Chrome splits every tab, plugin, extensions into its own process, therefore if one thing crashes like flash or any other plugin, it doesn’t affect the whole browsers and active web pages. Therefore this can lead to higher use in memory. But it also makes things easy, fast and convenient.
Chrome’s Prerendering feature which can cause high memory usage but it also loads web pages faster.
And of course the more tabs, extensions, and plugins you have opened, installed and running, more memory chrome is going to use.
