    "Chrome is great! But..."

    December 8, 2012  |   By Kascaden


    It really is Incredibly fast
    Pretty darn Stable - Pages will crash now and then, but for the most part very good.
    Flash Built in which is always a bonus


    Each tab is a separate instance of Chrome.
    Uses up a huge amount of memory - especially if you leave a tab open.


    It's a great system - and I like the fact that it's almost crash proof - but what that means, and what general users don't understand is that everything is a separate process. This means that while being almost crash proof (as a browser as a whole) It's incredibly RAM hungry!

    It uses something like half of the ram I have available in an older MacBook Pro (4GB!)
