    Default Extensions adding a process

    There are many extension that add a process to Chrome. Open Task Manager or Chrome's built in Task Manager and certain extensions will have a running process just for them. Add a process for every tab open and it gets really stupid really quick. Can you say resource hog? Wow! I added a few extensions and when I looked in Task Manager there were like 10 processes for chrome and huge RAM usage. I will be keeping extensions to a minimum.

    This same thing happened with opera too, and Chrome and Opera have this in common.

    Memory is sooo cheap these days...
    And Chrome is sooo fast...
    and keeps being fast even with extensions...

    So really, what is the problem here?

    Memory may be cheap but there's more to it than that. If all developers went the cheap memory route, there would be no advantage for memory being cheap. Because you would have to buy more and more.

    Also, not everyone can simply add memory. My motherboard only supports 4gb and is max'd out. I don't have the money to replace it right now

    I thought the idea was for Chrome to be "lean and mean." Again, the same thing as memory -- more and more processes (can) mean less performance. A good developer weighs resources against performance to fit their product to the most user's it can.
