How do I identify which process belongs to which tab in Google Chrome?
Normally, I have a (ridiculously) large number of tabs open. If I need to free memory on my box, I would like to choose based on tab/process memory footprint.
Chrome has it's own in-built task manager which makes it easy to identify which process belongs to which tab(s). You can access it by the hotkey Shift+Esc or by right clicking on the title bar and selecting "Task Manager".
Chrome also has a more detailed memory page which can be accessed by opening a new tab and entering
chrome://system/ into the omnibox.
In chrome go to the Menu → Tools → Task Manager.
This will bring up a list of all the tabs, background processes, plugins, overall Chrome process, etc...
If you right click in this window you can have it display the OS process ID associated with each tab. This should you allow you to compare that to the process ID in windows task manager, top, or whatever you use to view processes.
Pressing Shift+Esc, you will get the process manager then you can kill the processes, select the desired one (You'll see the title from the website on the tab), and just click "End process", Sort it by private memory (with the arrow pointing down), so you will see the most consuming tabs first..
