Question about Chrome

3 posts in this topic

Ok, I am using Chrome and every now and then, I get chrome crashing on me. However very seldom. I notice that under taskmanager that according to the number of tabs I have open, the instances of *chrome.exe*32 equals the tabs open.

 

is there a reason for this first?

 

I remember long ago asking, probably around the chrome version 14 through 16 timeframe that, this feature of having so many instances is to prevent a bad tab from crashing chrome as a whole.

 

I get chrome to crash maybe once every 4-6 months.

 

is it uncommon for all of chrome to crash due to multiple instances?

 

Thanks.

Yes, it's to ensure that if a tab crashes, the entire browser doesn't come down.

 

(As you said on the next line..)

 

I would say multiple instances increases the chances that Chrome will crash, but far more likely is that an addon is causing a bad interaction and that's what is bringing the browser down.

 

Addons run in the main Chrome thread, thus meaning the addons can cause the entire browser to crash.

well that's good. I have uninstalled most of my addons by now.
