Question about Google Chrome

How do I reduce memory and CPU usage for google chrome?

I have disabled all of my extensions. I have tried using shift + esc to monitor usage, but it is erratic and does not account for the 100% usage I am seeing. The same goes for task manager, which shows 100% but is only accounting for about ~50%. I am watching movies online, so shockwave is also functioning, and chrome shows 4 .exes running, despite the one tab (I am assuming all of those are required for the movie to run).

I don't see anything here that points to the issue being Google Chrome. You may have an infection or another program could be causing this as well. I just helped a customer with the same issue last week - turned out to be McAfee.

Google Chrome is another milestone in Google?s grand plans of world domination ?...


Google Chrome is another milestone in Google’s grand plans of world domination — and they are finding very few people who complain. Chrome is an extremely fast and lightweight browser. It packs in a ton of features in a minimal interface, and introduces some novel ideas to the whole idea of browsing. The top bar and the menu bar have been omitted completely, leaving a rather large space for browsing.

Inspect Memory Usage
Chrome
has some advanced options for inspecting memory usage. Right-click on the browser tab in the start bar select ‘Task Manager’. You will get a window showing how much memory is being used by each tab in the browser. Now click on ‘Stats for Nerds’ and a new tab will open in the browser, with a process ID, name of the site, memory and virtual memory usage. The great thing about this feature is that if you are using other browsers at the same time, then the tab shows the memory usage by that browser as well.

Bookmarks
To
bookmark a page, click on the star icon next to the address bar. To access the list of bookmarks at any point of time during browsing, key in [Ctrl] + [B]. To make it disappear, use the same shortcut again.

Incognito Mode
Chrome
has a secret mode that allows you to surf the Web anonymously. On the top right corner of the browser, to the right of the address bar is the page control button. Click on it and select ‘New incognito window’ or [Ctrl] + [Shift] + [N]. The sites surfed using this mode will not appear in the history, and the cookies they store on the system will be deleted as soon as the tab is closed.

Make Google Chrome Your Default Browser
Click on the ‘Customize and Control Google Chrome’ button to the right of the address bar, click on ‘Options’ and under ‘Default browser’ click on the ‘Make Google Chrome my default browser’ button.

Navigation Tips
Right-click on the back and next buttons to go through a recent history of visited Web sites. Drag and drop any tab from the browser into the desktop to start a browser with just that tab open. To open a tab you have just closed by mistake, use the keys [Ctrl] + [Shift] + [T]. Use [Ctrl] + [1] to [9] to cycle through tabs from the keyboard.

Expand Text Boxes
This is a very useful feature for use in any kind of site that requires you to fill in text in a text area. When you come across a text area in a forum or a form in a Web site, just click on the bottom right corner of the text area, click and drag it as per your requirements.

Inspect Memory Usage By A Site
Right-click on any empty space in the Web page, click on inspect element. This is, by the way, how you view the source code of a site on Chrome. Once here, click on the first line of the HTML code, which will effectively select the entire site. Then click on resources. This shows up the usage of memory by each element in the Web page. You can sort the elements by time or by size. If you reload the page, every image and script on the page shows up in the graph and gets plotted in real time.

Have you installed any new extensions lately? If so, try disabling the extensions. If not, you may want to try reinstalling Chrome on your computer.

Cooliris does not entirely work properly. will not load from Google image bar... or want to load urls in preferences tab.


I assume it's normal for the RAM usage to peak up when browsing 100+ images. Check the version of Chrome too. Try to exit other programs which are running in the background. Disable other chrome extension which you don't use in chrome. Use some Tuneup programs to tuneup your Computer. Here are the Links. CCleaner, Advance Syestem Care.

Hope it helps.

Google chrome keeps going snap why?


"Aw, Snap!" IssueYou may see the "Aw, Snap!" message if a webpage crashes unexpectedly.
SolutionsIf a webpage crashes unexpectedly, you can simply reload the page. If you're seeing the "Aw, Snap!" message for every page you visit, try the solutions below:

Some anti-virus or firewall applications, such as Symantec Endpoint Protection, can prevent Google Chrome from working properly. Test whether such applications on your computer are causing the error by turning them off temporarily. Then try opening Google Chrome again. If you are able to open the browser, you'll need to create an exception in your anti-virus or firewall settings for Google Chrome. Once you've done so, you can then re-enable the applications.
Conflicting applications that users have reported include the following:
  • Spyware Doctor
  • Comodo firewall
  • McAfee Enterprise
  • McAfee Virus Scan
Try disabling your extensions one by one to see if a particular extension is causing the problem.
  1. Click the wrench icon chrome_toolsmenu.gif on the browser toolbar.
  2. Select Tools.
  3. Select Extensions.
  4. On the Extensions page, click Disable for the extension you'd like to temporarily remove.
Go back to your list of extensions at any time to re-enable disabled extensions. You may need to refresh the page in order to use extensions you've re-enabled.

If the browser continues to display the "Aw, Snap!" message, your user profile may be corrupted.
To create a new user profile, follow these steps:
  1. Exit Chrome.
  2. Find the "Default" folder. It's usually located in the following locations:

    Windows

    • Windows XP: %USERPROFILE%\Local Settings\Application Data\Google\Chrome\User Data\
    • Windows Vista and Windows 7: %LOCALAPPDATA%\Google\Chrome\User Data\

    Mac OS X: ~/Library/Application Support/Google/Chrome/Default

    Linux: ~/.config/google-chrome/Default

  3. Rename the folder as "Backup default."
  4. Restart Chrome.

it is taken from support site..

My face book get hang after 2 or 3 minutes. Why. I am using google crome.


My friend, i understood your problem....this problem is due to low virtual memory of your computer.
Because Facebook is flash based site so that kind of problem occurs.

You have not specified your computer capabilities such as RAM, Processor,FSB etc..

Now best solution is that Download the newest version of "Adobe flash player" or also try new version of mozilla firefox..

I hope you understand and Thank you very much for giving me oportunity to solve your problem..

Please Give your Ratings...!!!

100% CPU usage


Hi,

Try to monitor the CPU usage before opening CROME. If it is normal before opening it then there is some process under CROME which takes you CPU usage report to GOOGLE on this. and remove it through Add/Remove programmes under control panel.

Try to use Firefox instead of CROME.

If it happens again then there is some thing wrong with OS( most probabaly Spyware or trozen).
