Google Chrome is a great web browser, but it is well known for being resource hungry. This has long been an issue, but the latest versions of the Chrome browser offer a reprieve that not only frees up resources in Chrome, but also makes the browser feel faster too when it’s under heavy usage and load. You’ll even find that it uses less memory, and less CPU as well.
Be sure you update the Chrome app before attempting this trick, earlier versions do not support the feature discussed here. We are covering this on Chrome for Mac, but the memory saver trick works for Windows PC as well.
Thanks for posting. I’m definitely going to try this out today as I get fans spinning on my MacBook Air with chrome hammering my cpu
