Lots of Chrome Processes Running





Possum
Hi

I was just looking at Windows Task Manager and notice lots of instances of Chrome Running.



I only have 2 tabs open in Chrome..


Why is this happening?

Do I need to do something about this?

Thank you..

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.

I wish firefox has this...

Yeah, I never knew that Chrome had a task manager. I agree that other browsers could benefit from their own task managers.

As said before it's the threaded system of Chrome; among the other browsers, Firefox doesn't use threads and Internet Explorer an hybrid mode.

What's a hybrid mode?

@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.
