Reduce Chrome Memory usage using TooManyTabs extension
Saturday, February 18, 2012| Surbhi Verma
Google Chrome was one of the first browsers to have multiple processes, which creates a separate process for each tab. That means , if you have 5 tabs opened on your Chrome browser, then you can see minimum 6 processes running in the task manager with the name of chrome.exe (5 for tabs and 1 for whole chrome). If you have installed extensions and plugins then they also have separate process for each of them.
Chrome's this feature occupies a lot of memory and hence might degrade the performance of your browser or your whole system. So there is an extension named 'TooManyTabs' which can help to reduce chrome's memory usage.
Using TooManyTabs extension you can selectively choose inactive tabs to be suspended so that they do not occupy any memory space. Suspending a tab/link is similar to bookmarking, which store the tab in TooManyTab, but also closes the tab from your browser.
How to use TooManyTabs:
1. Download and install TooManyTabs .
3. When you click this icon, you see all the opened tabs. To suspend and send any less important tab into TooManyTabs, you can click on the yellow icon at the top right of tabs showing in TooManyTabs list.
You can suspend any tab without entering into TooManyTabs window. For that simply go to the tab you want to suspend, then right click > Send tab to TooManyTabs.
4. To see suspended tab list, click on the icon on TooManyTabs. There in right side of opened window you can see all suspended tabs. To restore a suspended tab, just click on that respective tab in the Suspended tabs list.
