How to check memory usage of Chrome extensions?


Chrome web store offer you various new extensions so that you can enhance your web browsing experience. But, it can also slow down things by adding many others. In case, you are having trouble in picking the ones that are beneficial then check the memory usage of each extension.


Google Chrome has a built-in tool which can help you to show memory usage by each extension. Open the Chrome window and click on the menu icon present on the toolbar. Then go to “Tools” > “Task Manager.” Also, you can prefer the keyboard shortcut i.e. Shift + Esc. If you are opening the Chrome Task Manager for the first time then the window will be very small. But, you can resize it to see the full name of the extensions as well as their memory usage.
