I think that it is quite funny how sometimes companies get caught up in how clever they are being without thinking of the consequences.

After reading the Google Chrome comic strip I was left wondering what the effect would be of the clever use of processes - one per tab. I was certainly concerned.

Following my usual process of not installing beta products on my production or dev machine, I installed Chrome on a Virtual PC. I opened about ten tabs before hitting 200MB usage. The test VPC had 512MB RAM on Windows XP. This is a small amount of RAM but not unheard of in the field. I certainly would not expect a browser under low use conditions to be using nearly 40% of my RAM!
