Because so much of our daily personal and business lives is now online, it is important that we all use a browser that we can rely on. Chrome is the browser of choice for most users, simply because it offers a fast and highly stable experience. Of course, there will be times when tabs or pages don’t work properly, but If you notice a tab is unstable, or has stopped working, there is a way to fix it.
As you know, Chrome is based off of tabs. Instead of opening a new website in another window you can simply open a site in another tab. This cuts down on the number of windows you need to have open at any one time, thereby ensuring Chrome uses power more effectively. However, at times certain tabs and sites you are trying to load can become unresponsive.
What we mean by this is that either when you click on the tab it won’t open, or the page the tab is loading won’t scroll or an extension has crashed. When this happens you will normally see sluggish performance as your computer shunts more resources into trying to get the tab running or figuring out what the issue is.
When this happens, our most common first reaction is that all of Chrome is acting up, and then to open Task Manager to shut the whole program down. With Windows, for example, when you open Task Manager it may indicate that Chrome is not responding.
Most of the times, this is not actually the case, and terminating the program this way will cause all open tabs to close. If you have not saved your work or enabled the tab-saving feature on Chrome (where tabs will re-open the next time you open Chrome), you will have to spend time tracking down these tabs to open again.
Instead, when a tab starts to act up, try:
When you do this you should be presented with a blue error page. Once you get to this page you can either reload the previous page or service (the Web address should still be in the URL bar), or go to another page.
Task Manager is also useful because it gives you an overview of the general usage stats of each tab. For example you will see:
It is important to note here that you should not go ending the process of every tab and process as this could cause Chrome to become unstable and crash. As a general rule of thumb: If you aren’t sure of the function of the task you are looking at, it is best to leave it alone.
