Google Chrome is a RAM hog – Everyone knows that.
But wait, the recent updates regarding Chrome suggest that this time, it might be a bit different.
Google Chrome – The Emperor of all browsers
Google released Chrome in 2008 for the first time intended to use in Microsoft Windows. The cross-platform web browser was developed taking in free software components from Apple Webkit and Mozilla Firefox. But right now, it is used in platforms of all sorts, majorly Android, along with Linux, macOS, iOS. So, to sum up, Chrome takes up almost 66% market share worldwide and is the absolute ruler.
Chrome is built on Google’s Chromium Project. The development of chrome was started by some of the Mozilla Firefox Developers and some of the Microsoft Web Developers further perfected it. Chrome has the best collection of features when it comes to user interface and security, speed, performance, but one issue with Chrome has always been persistent, it takes up so much of processing and RAM space and crashes the PC if multiple tabs are opened.
According to a report from WindowsLatest, Google is working on ‘PartitionAlloc-everywhere’ support to improve the performance of Google Chrome in all sorts of platforms possible.
PartitionAlloc-everywhere will reportedly:
- Make Chrome Boot Faster
- Make Internal Page Loading Faster
- Make Chrome use less RAM
Though this update is still in beta condition, Google is rolling out this in both platforms like Android and Windows tells us that the stable update is going to come out soon.
Look at this thread related to PartitionAlloc’s performance:
Chrome Speed and Performance Issue and Possible Fixes
Chrome claims to give users the chance and opportunity to get things faster than other browsers. You have to be amazed at how they make the claim of 1 to 100 tabs:
“Optimized, from tabs 1 to 100”Google Chrome
Chrome is supposed to be evolving daily to become more memory optimized. However, that does not always work out. So, what do you do when Google Chrome starts being super slow?
Here are some fixes:
- Update Chrome – The best and fastest way to make Chrome better, more secure, and obviously speedy, is just to use the latest version of Chrome by updating it always.
- Close Unused Tabs – If you have thousands of tabs open at a time, it doesn’t matter what browser you are on, the PC will kill itself for sure. So, when you do not need a tab anymore, just close it to save a ton of memory.
- Turn off/Stop unwanted processes – You can turn off the unnecessary extensions you do not need or just stop the processes going on while using Chrome of which you have no need.
- Let Chrome Open Pages Faster – You can prefetch pages to make Chrome open those web pages faster than before. You can find the option under the Privacy and Security section of Settings under the banner of ‘Cookies and Site Data’ by the name – Preload pages for faster browsing and searching. Just turn that on if it is off.
- Check your PC for malware – It is always better to check first whether the problem is with Chrome or your PC itself. As a result, you should check for adware or malware on your desktop or laptop first.
- Avoid running multiple apps – If your device is not that high configured, running multiple apps at the same time can cause a serious memory shortage and can make Google Chrome work slower.
Try all of these and Chrome will surely work better!
Google is always trying to make Chrome faster and efficient than before and looks like this is going to be the next step. The faster Google accomplishes this step, the better. Because it is getting harder for people to cope up with Chrome as days pass by and Edge, Brave appear on the sight.
