QuickKill for Chrome

By MarkelSoft Free

Developer's Description

Chrome is great but sometimes it gets hung up or slows to a halt. When Chrome becomes unresponsive, QuickKill to the rescue as it kills all your Chromes processes and tabs at once and can restart Chrome if desired. One of the nice protection features of Chrome is that each tab in your Chrome browser has a separate Chrome process associated with it. This works great to ensure that if one of the tabs hangs up it does not effect another tab. But if you start many tabs or have more than one tab become unresponsive, Chrome can start to drag your system. There is a pro and a con to any feature. You can try to use Chrome to kill unresponsive tabs using Chromes Task Manager or close a tab but Chrome will wait or many not be responsive at all. So what do you do? QuickKill kills any running Chrome process -- separate browser startups and all processes running to support tabs -- at one quickly and cleanly. Note: if you have anything in a Chrome browser tab in a form etc to save, QuickKill will not save this. So if you have a responsive tab with info to save, save first before using QuickKill.
