Google Chrome now shows users how much RAM each tab is using. Whereas multitasking on browsers has become the standard, correctly managing system resources is critical. Google Chrome, a popular online browser, has added a handy function that allows users to keep track of the memory utilisation of individual tabs.
According to 9to5Google, this new upgrade is a step towards providing users with transparent information about how much system memory their open pages are eating.

Chrome has previously introduced Memory Saver mode, which conserves system memory by restricting the resources required by inactive tabs. This new feature, on the other hand, takes a step further by displaying real-time memory consumption data with a simple hover over a tab. This means you can now know which of your open websites are using up system resources without having to go through different settings.
This feature is very helpful for those who work with multiple tabs open and need to keep their laptops functioning smoothly. It’s a tool that caters to the demands of the average user—no technical knowledge is required to monitor your computer’s performance. When your system begins to lag, this simple, on-the-fly, and instructive tool can help you pick which tabs to dismiss.
Users can access the Memory and Energy Saver modes by going to the browser’s settings and scrolling down to the ‘Performance’ section. There’s also the option to keep select vital sites always open, which prevents critical pages from being refreshed every time you click on them.
The update is already live on the stable Chrome 119 channel and will be available to all users shortly. Those who can’t wait can enable it directly through Chrome’s experimental settings.
