To Permanently Fix Chrome Taking Too Much RAM

Google Chrome may be most people’s favorite browser, but it’s far from perfect. One of its biggest flaws is how much of your computer’s RAM it eats up.Most laptops don’t come with a huge amount of RAM; once the allotted memory is full, the computer can’t process any more actions. If you are also a victim of Chrome’s RAM hogging issue, follow some of our researched tips and add-ons and get rid of excessive memory usage.
 Few Tips To Release RAM from Chrome Use less extensions:

Though, there is a huge database of extensions available at the Google Play store, it does not mean that you own each one of them. There is no doubt that extensions make a lot of jobs easier for different social networks and other useful sites, but you need to take care of the RAM as well. Rather than using Chrome extensions, you can avail the services of user scripts and bookmark lets. You must be thinking what bookmark lets are; these are the souped-up forms of bookmarks found on Chrome which do not take any additional RAM. Using Chrome’s feature of bookmark synchronization, you can easily handle these bookmark lets. User scripts, on the other hand, are also a good alternative. The user scripts also do not engage unnecessary RAM and keeps the RAM free of burden.

 Switch to one process: 

 Google Chrome is a browser consisting of more than one processes. Each opened tab in the browser runs a different process. Each independent process makes the browser stable and at the same time, consumes a lot of RAM. However, Chrome handles and supports other process models too. Just as tabs, Chrome also runs a process on the basis of individual websites too. If Gmail is open in one tab and some social website in the other, these are two different processes and thus, consume a great deal of memory. What we need to do is eradicate the possibility to run different processes and instead confine it to one. To run a single process, create a Chrome shortcut and open the Properties tab. Search for the Target box and add the following phrase in the bar: –single-process Clear the Cache
For your ease of access, Google Chrome might have saved a lot of pictures, videos, and other stuff in the browser. You need to free that space to give some air to your RAM. For this, clear the cache by going to the Tools section and select ‘Clear Browsing Data’. Since the beginning of the time, remove all the cache, cookies, browsing history and download history to free the RAM.
