The browser I primarily use is Google Chrome. A feature in Chrome, that is little used and can be quite handy, is the built-in task manager. The Chrome Task Manager can provide you with details about the specific processes that are running (plus CPU, Network bandwidth being consumed, and a multitude of other options).
The easiest and quickest way I found to get to the task manager is simply right mouse click on Chrome’s tab bar (at the top of the screen) and select Task Manager. You can also get to the Task manager by clicking on the wrenchon the browser toolbar, by selecting Tools and then Task Manager OR use the shortcut keys Shift+Esc.
Chrome’s task manager is quite useful to determine what processes (i.e. tabs, extensions, etc.) is consuming the most memory and CPU cycles. This can be quite helpful when you suspect that there is an errant application or process running that is causing Chrome to misbehave.
To force a webpage or application to close in Google Chrome, select the webpage, then click End process. Sometimes multiple websites might share a single process, depending on how you opened them.
You can also right mouse click within the Task Manager Window to toggle on/off other options that may be helpful when troubleshooting.
