Chrome Support Article: Make webpages load faster (prerendering)
edit on 3/11/2012 by ChaoticOrder because: (no reason given)


It doesn't load the links on the page, it pre-loads frequently visited URLs and links you're likely to click, like if you're browsing a site and you keep clicking "next image" or whatever.

Um yes it does... did you even read the article. Chrome can try to predict which link you are going click next and it will load that page (prerender that page) in the background so that when you click the link the page will display instantly.

The original statement was that Chrome loads all the links on the page, which it does not. Also I edited my post to be clearer. Chrome does not load all the links on a page, and it doesn't always load a link at all, only if it's very probably that you'll be clicking it.

I already know what the article says.

Yes the original statement was false, but also partly true. It doesn't load all links but it does load one or a few. But I doubt that is really contributing much to the problem, it's most likely a plugin problem as I said.

Go to Chrome setting in the right hand corner...

Click "view background pages"

This will show you all the pages and extensions you have installed, chrome should take up less than 500 meg.

If you see an extensions taking up lots of memory that's the culprit, disable and see what happens.

That only stopped them for the current session they will come back when you restart chrome...

Go to Tools > Extensions

And remove them from Chrome permanently.

Most of the time it won't load any.

Not if "Enable" is unchecked. If you just ended the process in the View background pages window then yes.

You don't need to upgrade your RAM. Even 500MB is a lot for any web browser to be using. I have about 40 plugins installed in Firefox and it only uses between 200 and 300 MB on average. Some times it will get over 500 if I have it running for a while, but that's about the limit. 1GB is just beyond ridiculous.

all together, chrome takes 700 mb at the moment.

For the record I have 5 tabs open and about 6 extensions, Chrome is using just over 200mb. So it isn't a permanent problem with Chrome itself. A system reboot could possibly help as well.

What OS are you using? I ask because a newer OS like Windows 7 needs 2GB at a minimum to run, and chrome needs 1GB at a minimum. It's probably time to get a new computer.

chrome takes about 10 processes. but there are 40 others in my ram, but little to tiny ones.

It does that to avoid all your tabs crashing if one page crashes. I think you should reboot your computer if you don't do it fairly regularly.
