We all know very well that the tech giant Google’s Chrome has never been known to be a browser that consumes few resources. The greedy fame has been chasing it for many years and the tech giant Google does not seem to be able to counter this behavior. However, now according to the latest reports, the tech giant Google’s well-known and most used web browser will now consume more RAM.
Google Chrome Will Now Consume Even More RAM
The tech giant Google’s Chrome has never been known to be a browser that consumes few resources. The greedy fame has been chasing it for many years and the tech giant Google does not seem to be able to counter this behavior.
The new version now released seems to bring a sharpening of this situation and Chrome will consume even more memory. This time it is not the fault of the tech giant Google, but the well-known Spectre fault, which affects most processors.
The latest version of Chrome, the 67, was released recently and brings a novelty to users. Finally, the tech giant Google was able to protect users from the well-known processor failure and allow data theft between applications.
With Site Isolation, the great new feature introduced, Chrome will separate and protect your processes, preventing them from being monitored. The problem is even the impact it will have on memory consumption.
According to the tech giant Google, the implementation of Site Isolation will lead to an increase in memory consumption of between 10% and 13% when compared to previous versions of Chrome.
How to confirm that Site Isolation is active
The first step is to even install Chrome 67. After that, you can confirm its presence through Chrome’s Task Manager. You can find this option in Google’s browser menus.
There, and in the processes presented, you will see entries appear regarding substructures and associated sites. Each of them is running in isolation and has its own associated resources.
Enabling Site Isolation in Chrome
If you do not have Site Isolation present, you can enable it in the Chrome flags. At the chrome://address you just need to look for the Site isolation option simply opt-out the option and make sure you have the Default setting.
It is also possible to disable this option, but it is inadvisable since in this way Chrome is exposed to Spectre and all associated problems.
While this is a major improvement, the tech giant Google’s novelty will weigh on systems with fewer features and with RAM tending to be lower. Again, it has to be software that fixes hardware problems and consumes useful resources for users.
