Chrome could reduce its RAM usage on Windows and other platforms

Task Manager featured

Google Chrome is one of the most resources hungry apps on
Windows and it eats more RAM if you install extensions or keep
too many tabs opened. Google needs to work on resource
management for Google Chrome and a new feature is being
internally tested in Canary builds to make performance slightly
better.

Google Chrome comes with the Tab Discarding feature to monitor
tabs usage and suspend the tabs not being used. This feature
improves system performance and controls RAM usage to some
extent, but Google wants to refine the Tab Discarding with a
new feature called Tab Freeze.

With Tab Freeze, Google wants Chrome users to configure how tab
freezing works, allowing you to decide when to suspend a tab
automatically.

“Enables freezing eligible tabs when they have been
backgrounded for 5 minute,” Google explained how Tab Freeze
works.

At the moment, Chrome Canary allows you to use Tab Freeze with
the following combination:

  • Enable
  • Enable – no unfreeze
  • Enable freeze – unfreeze 10 seconds every 15 minutes
  • Disabled

When this feature is enabled, Chrome will automatically freeze
the tabs that have been inactive. You can test the feature in
Chrome Canary builds with unexpected bugs.

Tab Freeze could be released to the stable version of Chrome
browser later this year.
