Task Manager

The Google Chrome browser features a task manager that allows you to view the CPU, network and memory usage of each open tab, Google process and extension. Of course, it also gives you the ability to end any process (task) you want.

You will find this feature useful especially when you discover that the browser is using too much memory or is simply becoming slow, since it can show you what processes are the most resource-consuming.

How to open and use Chrome’s Built-In Task Manager

To open the browser’s task manager in Chrome OS, click on the Settings button (in the upper right-hand corner). Then hover the mouse over the More tools option and click on the option named Task Manager. However, a faster way would be to just use the keyboard shortcut: Search + Esc.

If you want to kill a process from the list, simply click on it and choose the End Process button.
