Rejoice Chrome users! Google has made major improvements to its Chrome web browser that would once again make it one of the least memory eater browsers in the market. Although Chrome is used by hundreds of millions of people worldwide due to its simplicity and power, most people aren't happy with it because it uses too much memory and power. Google has now solved these problems. The most recent release of Chrome ( Chrome 45 ) is intended to make your browsing experience faster and more efficient.

I don't know about your part, but I make heavy use of tabs. I currently have 200+ tabs open in my Google Chrome Web browser. And sometimes the number is even more. For me it's a daily thing, as I regularly open new tabs because of my habit of reading lots of stuff online, including cyber security updates, hacking news, knowledgeable articles of various categories, new recipes to cook something delicious and, of course, funny viral videos. Browsers — Everything for us, But Biggest Memory Eaters! I think you'll agree with me when I say: It's really hard to manage so many tabs on Chrome — and Firefox too. But worse still is the obstruction in the performance of your computer, as the tabs continue to run background processes and feed on your system's memory. It gets difficult to sort through them, everything slows down, and sometimes it crashes the browser itself. Doesn't it? But, I really don't face any issue while surfing on 200+ tabs at one time
