Breaking News : Everyone who uses lots of tabs in Google Chrome should know about this hack
Advertisement
#1
If you're one of those people who likes to have hundreds of Google Chrome tabs open at the same time, you might have noticed your laptop's performance and battery life suffering.
. . Running all those webpages can take a toll on your machine, especially if they're very memory intensive -- but closing them completely might make you lose something you intended to come back to later.
. . Fortunately, there's one thing you can do to easily, kill tabs and reduce the strain on your laptop, without closing them completely.
. .
Click on the 'Settings' button in Chrome (the three lines in the top-right corner, to the right of the URL field), and go down to 'More tools'.
. . Hover over this button and click 'Task manager' in the new menu which pops up.
. . You'll then get a list of all the tabs your browser is running, along with information about how much memory they're using up.
. . By clicking the 'Memory' button in the top bar, you can sort all the tabs to see which are using the most.
. . You can make the task manager window a bit bigger and increase the size of the columns, showing information about all the tabs you've got open.
. . If you want to kill some and free up memory, just click on the tab and press the 'End process' button in the bottom-left.
. . This will get rid of the page, replacing it with Chrome's 'Aw, Snap!' error warning.
. . It won't take up any memory, but if you need to go back to it later, you can find it again by scrolling through your tabs and refreshing the page.
. . Writing on Medium, web developer Primož Cigler found that by using the task manager to shut some troublesome tabs, he managed to double his laptop's battery life with just a few clicks.
. . It's far from a perfect fix, and it's not practical to be doing it all the time -- but if you're working on your laptop and you need all the battery life and memory you could get, it's a good solution.
