Hence, here in this article we will show you how to know and kill which pages that are consuming more RAM in Chrome. So, now without wasting much time let’s get started and explore the whole tutorial that we have mentioned below.
What you have to do is open the Chrome task manager. It is very similar to the typical Windows and will show you exactly what resources each page consuming, extension or application in the background that you visit or install and you can also close as your choice.
Before you start you have to be clear that with this administrator access your browser is not in danger since nothing you touch on it which will “spoil” anything. The only annoyance that you can find is to unintentionally close a tab or process that you have to re-open it manually afterward
Follow this step to find out which google chrome tab using more ram.
- So, the first thing you have to do is open the task manager of Chrome.
- If you use Windows or GNU/Linux it will be enough to press the Shift + Esc keys simultaneously. In macOS there is no direct access or hotkey, so you will have to enter navigating the menus.
- To do this, click on the options icon at the top right, choose More tools and click on the Task Manager option.
- A new window will appear which will show you in a list what your browser is using. Specifically, it will tell you the web pages you have open in each tab, the extensions, the applications in the background, the sub-frames or other internal processes.
- By default, the administrator will show you four statistics for each element. The Memory footprint is the one that shows you the RAM that each one consumes, that is what we come to know about, but you can also measure the CPU and data consumption of your network as well which tell you which tab use more ram.
- Finally, there is a column with the identifiers of each of the processes. You can also see many more columns with more information by right-clicking on the process and then simply select by clicking on the information that you want to show.
- If you click once on the name of one of the processes you will select it, and if you double click it will show it in Chrome.
- If you think that a page or process is consuming too many resources, then you can simply close it from the browser or directly from the administrator simply by clicking the End process button located at the right part of the window.
How To Enable/Disable Chrome Extensions?
If you have plenty of active Chrome extensions, then this might also cause some issues on your Chrome memory and cause browser lagging. So you can disable unwanted active extensions and see if it is making an impact on your Chrome performance I hope it will make good use for you. Click on the Chrome menu (hamburger menu), go to More Tools and then select Extensions. Here you can enable/disable them according to your convenience.
I usually enable some extensions whenever I need them, I don’t just keep them active all the time, it’s kind unnecessary. Enabling/disabling them just takes a few seconds, so why bother. I know Chrome is still the favorite browser for most of us, but I badly hope they give some fix for their hidden RAM-eating beast.
