Google Chrome finally gets an update that stops chewing through memory and causes instability Windows 10 Machines.
On it Chromium base, Describes how Google uses the Terminate Process functionality to make a lot of “clean” exit processes in the Chrome browser. This basically translates to a smoother experience and less prone to crashing in Windows 10.
Google Chrome has long been known for its ability to hack computer RAM, especially when a lot of tabs and windows are open in the application. This not only slows down a computer but also has a bad side effect that can cause browser crashes.
On Windows 10 systems we lost the number of times Chrome with 8GB of RAM or less did not respond or crashed on the desktop. For example, on the Fifth Generation Surface Pro with the Core i5 processor and 4GB of RAM, Chrome can chew most of its resources, making using the browser a more exciting and unstable experience.
Also, after an open credit session with multiple Chrome tabs, closing the browser may leave some remaining processes consuming system resources.
The Terminate Process function is often used in Windows to unconditionally stop a particular process and all its texts. Think of it as a way to completely shut down the app and prevent anything from running in the background. Doing so frees up any computer resources that an application has taken.
Therefore, using Terminate Process should be a way for Google Chrome users to select a tab or close the entire browser, and can immediately recall the computer resources it uses. From our understanding, this should make Chrome overall smoother and less resource-intensive.
The use of the Terminate Process functionality in Chrome is still being tested by Google. We would not be surprised if the new version of Chrome comes out in 2021, however in practice you are unlikely to notice the change except for the more consistent Chrome experience in Windows 10.
