    Chrome constantly crashes on my W10 PC to the point I've fucked it off and installed Opera. So sounds lovely but I'd rather have a system that works.

    Really? I can't even remember the last time Chrome crashed. Have you tried using it with no extensions?

    So you type “what’” and get a big pop-up telling you what the weather is supposed to be like outside? Wouldn’t it be better for them to wait until you had typed a bit more?

    I'd rather put up with it than disable adblock TBH.

    Switched to Firefox about a year ago, but mainly for privacy reasons.

    No doubt the others will copy these things soon enough.

    It's not a pop up. It appears in the search box and obviously dynamically changes as you type more.

    What is it? have you tried running Chrome without it or reinstalling? Chrome is pretty much seen as a super stable browser so summat must be adrift....

    I think my W10 install is fucked actually but I haven't had time for a reinstall and Opera doesn't crash. Only extension is adblock.

    Is it still a horrible bloated memory hog? Or have they fixed that?

    This only happens to me when something else is either using all the system memory or has some graphics thing going on, like an AAA game that I've alt-tabbed out of. Not sure it should happen, technically, but that's the only time I see it.

    I use 'The Great Suspender' extension which puts all non active tabs to sleep. Right now, I've probably got 60-80 tabs open across multiple browser windows and it's only using 4% of system resources.

    Having a couple of torrents in the background does it for me but there is something wrong with memory allocation in my Windows 10. I have to fuck with the page file allocation every time there's an update. Is 16gb not enough these days? We've just installed W10 pcs with 16gb of RAM at work and it's normally the case that when my work computer catches up with my home one then I need a new one at home.

    16GB should still be OK for a while - it's what I've got.

    Saul Goodman It's all good, man

    I haven't heard of that, but it should be standard on all browsers. Only the window in focus should be active/using resources.
    I'm going to give it a go.

    They can introduce whatever they want, snazzy as it may be, moved back to Firefox this year which rocks and gonna try and avoid Chrome and Google stuff from now on. On computers at least anyway.

    I've just seen Chrome crash on a brand new work computer with about ten tabs open running nothing but Chrome and an in-house chat app. :facepalm:

    Google really need to get a slimmed down version going for none Chrome OS systems. but can't see that ever happening.

    There's always a trade off though - if you free up memory of the non-active tabs it has to be subsequently restored from swap, so switching between tabs can become sluggish. And to safely suspend the execution of a tab you need its process to be isolated so it doesn't interfere with other running processes, which imposes restrictions on resource sharing & allocation, resulting in each tab requiring more memory to begin with. As usual there's no silver bullet, it's always a compromise.
