A new gadget for Google Chrome

In the new Chrome update, Google will directly display how much memory a panel with an open website consumes. So, if you are used to using several bookmarks simultaneously, but your computer suffers a little from it, you can check in this way which page “eats up” the operating memory the most and in case of emergency simply turn it off.

The novelty is available in the Google Chrome application from version 119, both for Windows and for macOS or ChromeOS. Cross-platform availability is important, as Chrome is one of the dominant browsers not only on ChromeOS, but especially on Windows machines. Even on macOS, which is used by computers from the American Apple workshops, it holds second place behind the native Safari browser.

In order to use this feature, you just need to set it up directly in your browser. If you have updated but haven’t received the feature yet (it’s coming gradually for all users with the corresponding version), type “chrome://flags/#memory-saver-memory-usage-in-hovercards” in the address bar (without the quotes) and set get the gadget manually.
