Help, chrome sucking up all of my RAM... - Page 2

post #11 of 16
I just started a thread yesterday about my problems with chrome as well. I do not notice a large amount of RAM usage but after it has been open a while its slows to a crawl and is unusable, if I close it then open it right back up, its fine again. And like you, this is just recently. Firefox is calling me to become my browser again.

I used firefox for years and years but switched to chrome because I can log in to a new machine and get all of my bookmarks easily. I think firefox added that recently, I may try it again.

Only have one extension, adblock plus. I don't see any addons.

Try unchecking "Continue running background apps when Chromium is closed" from the settings, and disable any unused Plug-ins (via Content Settings in Settings). Yes, Plug-ins and Extensions are two different things biggrin.gif.
If that fails, you may want to backup your settings and data, and re-install Chrome.

I unchecked that, I'll see what happens thanks!

Make like 20GB or more virtual memory. Search on the internet to learn how to make virtual memory...

Virtual memory takes up only your heart disc space like 20GB virtual memory takes up 20GB

Shutting off the "continue running background apps" seems to have fixed it. I'm down to 400MB usage after a whole day with about 10 tabs open. It seems like it was storing closed tabs in memory even if it was closed while the program was still running, which causes problems if you want an HD movie on youtube or something.

Interesting, I wonder if other Chrome users are encountering that one.
