One of the most irritating thing for me in Google Chrome is the way memory and process management is done. Each tab opened, will have a separate process running. Shafqat Ahmed has found that Chrome supports other process models as well. Here are the process models for Chrome browser

1. Process Per Tab (default model)

2. Process Per Site: One process per website. For example a user with two tabs opened at Gmail and another opened at facebook will have the two google tabs running in the same process.

3. Single Process ( walla! this is what I was looking for)

At the chrome shortcut pass the appropriate command like option to control Chrome’s behavior.


If you are looking for snapshots, read Shafqat’s post where he is explained in greater detail.
