Type ‘chrome://flags/#max-tiles-for-interest-area’ in the address bar of your chrome browser, after which you’ll be re-directed to an options page of which the first tab will have the default option enabled. Change it to 512 MB, and re-launch the application which actually is your computer’s actual memory but Chrome defaults it to a 128 MB for security reasons.
2) Extension or Add-on Removal
Almost every website has an extension and add-ons which are also regularly heaped upon your browser’s load. The task Manager as well cannot close the unwanted extensions for you. So you should remove the active add-ons from the leeching ones. Active extensions are supposed to be kept on a regular check to regulate your speed. So, you should disable all active add-ons while you are not availing it. To remove the unwanted add-ons or extensions, open setting and disable the Extensions, which will disable add-ons as well both mean the same.
