Kako optimizovati Chrome i smanjiti upotrebu memorije

Chrome is widely known for its high RAM usage on desktop computers, especially on Mac devices. Although Google has taken steps to improve the situation, users may still encounter “out of memory” errors while using this web browser. Fortunately, there are some steps you can take before resorting to buying additional RAM or a new computer.

First, it’s worth noting that adding more RAM can improve the performance of your Chrome browser. It is recommended that your computer has at least 16GB of RAM to effectively manage a larger number of open tabs. However, if you currently do not have the option to upgrade your RAM, there are several things you can do to optimize Chrome.

  1. Check open tabs: Close tabs that are not in use. Each open tab consumes a certain amount of RAM, so closing unused tabs can free up memory and improve performance.
  2. Delete cache and history: Periodically clearing your browser’s cache and history can reduce memory load. Open Chrome settings and find the option to clear cache and history.
  3. Disable unnecessary extensions: Chrome browser extensions provide additional features, but each active extension also consumes a portion of RAM. Disable unnecessary extensions to free up memory.
  4. Update Chrome: Google regularly releases updates that enhance performance and address memory issues. Regularly update Chrome to use the latest version.
  5. Run Chrome Task Manager: Chrome has a built-in Task Manager that allows you to see how much memory each open page and extension is using. This can help you identify resources that consume a lot of RAM and optimize or remove them.

By combining these steps, you can significantly reduce memory usage in Chrome and improve browser performance. Whether you have enough RAM or not, optimizing Chrome will allow you to use this popular web browser more efficiently.
