I've recently upgraded my Google Chrome to the newest version (38 -> 40) and I'm experiencing system level crashes. This mostly happens when I have two windows and more than a handful of tabs open.
Currently, just rebooted after a crash and restored my Chrome session, I have 2 windows and 20 tabs overall (this time I stopped most of them before even getting completely loaded). I also have 8 extensions.
What's bothering me is the 300 child processes under the main
I understand the logic of "one process per tab" but my experience is each tab (and extension) has around 10 child processes plus a number of other childs that are not associated to any tabs!
What is Google Chrome doing? Is this all normal? Maybe the crashes are not related to the new version of Chrome?
