When leaving several tabs open in Google Chrome for hours/days, I notice that some pages end up using huge amounts of RAM, to the point where the whole OS (XP) becomes unresponsive due to paging. When I'm lucky, I can finally bookmark the list of open URLs, close Chrome, and start again; When I'm not, I simply must kill Chrome and hope I can recover the list of open URLs.
- Why is that? Memory leaks in plug-ins?
- Is there a way to configure Chrome so that a single tab/page won't use more than a set amount of RAM?
