This is normal, nothing to worry about.
Update to the latest version of Chrome anyway.
Chrome runs everything possible as a separate application, so that if anything crashes, the browser will try to recover by itself. If one tab crashes, only that is crashed. If adobe flash crashes or Java crashes, then also, only that plugin alone crashes, So that would explain the multiple processes.
Use the built - in Task manager of Chrome to see what the various running processes of Chrome are.
Use Shift-Esc in Chrome to open Chrome Task Manager.
Yeah, I never knew that Chrome had a task manager. I agree that other browsers could benefit from their own task managers.
Haha you guys never knew about it? It's so useful I use it every time facebook decides to freak out at me (at least 4 times a day.)
@jcreus, Firefox definitely uses threads, just not separate sandboxed processes per tab/plugin. They are working on it, though, considering it is a big advantage of Chrome over Firefox.
That's good features.
I'm going to try.
My dad using Chrome
I'm using Firefox.
Both we are working on the same computer.
