Chrome is running all of it's tabs in a single process, and when I open a large number of tabs it really slows down my machine. Considering Chrome's original marketing played up running each tab as a single process, I was surprised to find out that Chrome no longer does this.
I tried the
--proccess-per-tab flag, but I got an error (
-43 to be exact).
The argument I tried was
open -a /Applications/Google_Chrome.app/Contents/MacOS/Google_Chrome --args --process-per-tab
Running Mac OS 10.6.7 and Chrome 13.0.761.0
Update: Just opened chrome, and its grouping my tabs into 4 different processes.
As time goes on, the processes will merge into one.
