Over a year ago I posted a screenshot of chrome vs edge, and chrome had 92 processes consuming 2.1GB RAM vs edges 19 processes consuming 3.2GB RAM

Just seen this... WTF google, how can you need soooo much ram, I thought you had fixed your high memory issues!!!

    Browser extensions. Maybe don't use that many.

    Don’t have that many if I’m honest, only have 2-3 active

    welp, is not just the browsers nowadays being ram hungry-beasts. web development relying on client side rendering takes its share too

    Bloody hell, soon web apps will need to put in system requirements in order to use the site

    “Sorry but to use Facebook, you need at least 16GB ram and a Threadripper 3rd gen”

    I don't have that many VS extentions, but sonar lint still eats ram and processing power like cracy.

    @err-occured don't worry - by that time that "threadripper 3rd gen" will be like having an Intel Core2Duo as the minimal sys. req. today.

    Side effect of cheaper tech, costly software. 128MB of RAM was mind blowing not so long ago, now it’s tiddlywinks. Higher limits in this case turned into lower standards

    73 processors.

    - 3 extensions (based on you're comment)
    - 10 YouTube videos
    - 50 JAvascript intensive websites
    - 10 pages on SO

    All this shit eats up ram.

    Now kill you're largest chrome process and see what it is.
    Probably an extension like ublock origin with every setting enabled.

    @C0D4 0 YouTube videos, all web pages 😂

    @err-occured you're hiding the process list. I can only make educated guesses.

    @C0D4 they’d only say google chrome I believe

    @err-occured chrome has a built in task manager to revel per process usage by name.

    @C0D4 thanks for letting me know, it’s about fucking time they did that 🤣

    @err-occured that's old... really old!!!!

    @C0D4 I’ve either I’ve seen it and I’ve ignored it or be just never looked, not actually sure

    @err-occured they did hide it in the menu, used to be right click context menu on the title bar of the browser.

    One of those settings you have to go find.

    maybe if people stopped using the bloated JS libs they do...

    @err-occured @C0D4 I'm way late, but the combo is Ctrl+Alt+Escape on Windows iirc. No idea if it's the same on Linux since some DEs use that for other things...

    @Parzi 🤔i wasn't aware of a keyboard shortcut for it.

    There's another for The things we learn on devRant.

    @Parzi JS frameworks can be lightweight if used correctly, it’s the libraries that are used on top that’s the issue, especially if you only use one function out of the hundreds it provides, or use the dev version rather than the minified version

    For example, underscore.js is 60KB dev, 6KB min, and you use 1 function out of the entire library. You are probably better off extracting the function that you need rather than importing the entire library.

    I think there is also a way to only include the dependencies you’ve used by scanning your app code and then only includes the functions you’ve used when you build your app. I might be wrong
