Is it possible to run google chrome in a single process?

I found only the one flag -


but running chrome with it shows me following message:

You are using an unsupported command-line flag: --single-process. Stability and security will suffer.

... and it still running in multiple processes

That flag was removed a long time ago and no longer works. –  Rik Oct 4 '13 at 22:04
I've already understood that :). Is there something similar? –  Vlad L Oct 4 '13 at 22:06
Not with Chrome, as far as I know. You could check if Chromium still supports the flag. –  Rik Oct 4 '13 at 22:10
I remember Chrome had some sort of option in it's preferences, but as I don't use the browser I can't tell for sure. –  Doktoro Reichard Oct 4 '13 at 23:27
Would you please explain why you want to run the browser as a single process? –  user151227 Oct 5 '13 at 2:47
