Chrome will reduce the consumption of RAM (2 photos + video)

For absolutely all computer usersimportant point is the effective consumption of RAM. Innovation in the Chrome browser will reduce the use of RAM, but at the first stage, this option will have to be enabled manually. In the future, this feature will work in automatic mode, and is currently available only to developers.

To activate this option in the test versionChrome Canary updates will use the switch Skip best effort tasks. The official description of this option states that when it is activated (the checkbox is selected), low-priority tasks are not performed when the browser is turned on. With a further increase in the consumption of RAM, the queue of tasks with low priority can grow.

Thus, low priority tasks such assuch as clearing the cache, when the browser is turned on, they will turn off and do not function in the background. This innovation, according to the developers, will significantly speed up the operation of the computer due to the release of RAM. After Chrome is closed, deferred tasks will run automatically, again without overloading the PC’s RAM.

In the absence of problems when working in testversion of this option will soon appear in the normal version of the Chrome browser. In the Chrome Canary version, the function can now be activated via entering chrome: // flags / # disable-best-effort-tasks into the address bar by pressing the Enter key after the keyboard. In the window that opens, in front of the “Skip best effort tasks” option, select the “Enabled” value.

Apparently, the Chrome developers themselvesunderstand how cruel the brainchild is in relation to the RAM of devices. Not for nothing in the Web every now and then users arrange demonstration video shows. So the company Corsair, which produces computer components, demonstrated how Chrome interacts with computer memory. Even compared to the Adobe Photoshop graphics editor, the browser “guzzles” the memory more aggressively and so selflessly that the error message known to users is displayed that the program does not respond. After that, there is the unfortunate "blue screen of death" of Windows.

This is your RAM.

And THIS is your RAM on Chrome.
