Chrome Browsing Slow, Unresponsive Pages, Kill or Wait? - Page 2

post #11 of 47
Chrome has taken more and more memory to use with every release, whereas Firefox's goes down with every release.

Kill em. At worse, you will have to reload your pages. I notice about once every few hours it is not a bad idea to shut down chrome completely and start it again.

Look, everything was running fine two weeks ago and unless in the last two weeks something drastically has changed with Chrome, would a picture of task manager convince you guy's that there is plenty of CPU power and plenty of available memory? Seriously, 2GB of RAM is plenty for just basic internet browsing!

Closing and restarting Chrome every 5 minutes and you'll be fine, please only post if you have a solution that will permanently fix my brother's intermittent issue.

My mother's 6 year old Acer laptop Celeron 2GB's of RAM running Windows Vista with Google Chrome is running just fine with no freezing using only 1/3 of available system memory and 66 processes. We all know Vista is a resource hog compared to XP 35 processes with 1400MB of available system memory, you keep saying more memory will solve my problem. Well I have 1.4GB of memory free so if I need more memory I've already have more on tap.

Systemlord yes you are correct that 2GB is enough for browsing. http://support.google.com/chrome/bin/answer.py?hl=en&answer=95411 we are all very aware that google has marketed chrome as fast and wonderful. What extensions (if any) is he running, what antivirus is he running, does he have anything changed in the chrome://flags/ section? Such as GPU enabled or disabled or something strange otherwise? Moreover try uninstalling and re-installing in safe mode instead of normal mode. Also you need to test another browser and see if they crash during the same activities, he doesn't have to use it but you should be sure it's not system related. If this happened 2 weeks ago then do your due diligence as his brother and go into his system logs and see what occured 2 weeks ago, it may reveal a Windows update that needs rolled back.

I have look at Event Viewer, I have looked at all logs within Windows and nothing to report. There is no new software installs lately, that's it. Other than drivers for the 9600GT everything is fine with other browsers, no issues at all. No extensions. Something is clearly wrong with Chrome and I aim to find out what it is, my brother is very clear about fixing Chrome. I tried in Safe Mode and still had trouble. He doesn't want any other browser even if it solves his problem. That's just the way he is, stubborn to the end.

Installed on C: drive
1.Google Chrome
2. Adobe Photo Shop
3. Quicken Starter Edition
4. Norton 360

Try firing up chrome in "incognito" mode and see if it crashes in the same manner. Incognito will put the browser in a slightly more minimalist mode, try that until it crashes or doesn't. After that disable Norton 360 temporarily and see if chrome crashes, i've known AV's to get a definition update and suddenly cause instability.

What!? "incognito" mode, what are AV's? Are you speaking english? I never said that Chrome crashes, I stated that Chrome has this intermittent interruptions where the mouse and internet page freezes. Sometimes it's only for 1 second while other times it's 30 seconds where it pauses/freezes, but never crashes.

"Incognito" mode is the private mode, click the menu button in the top right and scroll down to "new incognito window." It doesn't log browsing history and doesn't store cookies, it also disabled anything different from chrome. AV is Anti-Virus. I'm speaking acronyms.

Incognito mode or private browsing in laymen's terms.... hold Ctrl+Shift and hit N on the keyboard

AV's if you read his post are clearly Anti-Virus programs.

It's not rocket science.
