When you open Task Manager on your computer after it is installed Google Chrome and opening some web pages, you'll notice that Chrome uses one process per tab you've opened in Browser, plus another one for the core of the proletterτος περιήγησης, καθώς και μια για το eht GPU (graphics processing unit, ή unit processing graphics).
If you do not open hundreds of tabs in your browser, you do not have to worry, but if you are like me that I run too many tabs at the same time (100 or even more), you have to do something.
Opening so many tabs of course depends on the installed μνήμη RAM you have, and it can affect your system performance.
Tip: You can open from the address bar the following:
chrome: // memory-redirect
to display all memory information.
There you will find every tab you have opened, and the process ID. You can use this information to find the process (PID) you are interested in from Windows Task Manager.
You can change the way that Chrôme manages the processes by running the parameter -Process-per-site. If you do, Chrome will start with a single process websites which you open. The five pages of iGuRu.gr, for example, will run under the same process instead of using five different processes. This will save you a lot of RAM.
To use the parameter you just need to append it to the shortcut of Chrome. Right-click on the shortcut you use to start Chrome and select properties. If the shortcut is on the taskbar, right-click the program name a second time when the jumplist opens.
Locate the goal field to attach the parameter to the end. Make sure there is a space between chrome.exe and the -process parameter. In the system we tested the parameter, the full line looks like this:
C: \ Program Files (x86) \ Google \ Chrome \ Application \ chrome.exe - process-per-site
If along with the parameter -Process-per-site you also want to disable plugins, add the relevant parameter (-Disable-plugins) as in the example below
C: \ Program Files (x86) \ Google \ Chrome \ Application \ chrome.exe - disable-plugins -process-per-site
You will need to restart Google Chrome for the changes to take effect. If you notice problems, you can remove the parameter from the shortcut and everything will be as it was before.
