How to optimize Google Chrome to use less memory

Google Chrome is considered one of the most popular web browsers today. However, users are still complaining about the application uses too much memory of the device when operating. Today, the forum would recommend to readers a trick to optimize this browser to help the computer use less memory.

How To Tweak Google Chrome Browser To Use Less Memory

When using Chrome, the browser will perform a new process every time a user opens a new tab, just as it does in the current version of Internet Explorer. Each tab when active will use a process of its own memory processing. This ensures that your usage can be continuous, but using too much memory will be a problem if the user's device is not configured properly.

However, you can fix this problem by following the instructions below, by checking how many processes Chrome is using when operating by opening Windows Task Manager and performing customization. .

- First, look for the Chrome browser shortcut on the desktop screen or navigate to the location of the application stored on your device.

- Right click, select "Properties"
- The "Properties" dialog box appears, select the "Shortcut" tab, then in the "Target" you insert the command -process-per-site as shown below.
- Close and restart the Chrome browser. 
- Your computer now uses less memory than before, users can compare the use of the machine before and after the implementation of the "Processor" in the Windows Task Manager (press the key combination) Ctrl + Alt + Delete).

This customization has 3 different modes:
--process-per-tab: This mode is the default. Each time a new tab opens, Chrome creates a separate process for that tab.
--process-per-site: This mode Chrome will run every website as a process.
--single-process: This mode is all tabs that run on only one process.

For example, if you open on Chrome 4 tabs include: 2 Facebook tab, 1 Google.com tab, 1 Gmail tab.
Mode --process-per-tab: Chrome will create 4 processes.
Process --process-per-site: Chrome will create 3 processes.
Mode --single-process: Chrome will create a process.
