While Google has talked about reducing the amount of memory its Chrome browser eats up in the past, progress has been fairly slow. Back in mid-2015, a Google engineer admitted that the Chrome team was looking into fixing RAM usage but this week, we finally got an update on the situation. Google has now announced that Chrome’s December update will finally optimise memory usage.
The Chrome 55 update will be downloadable from the 6th of December, so keep an eye out for that if you are a heavy Chrome user.

KitGuru Says: Google Chrome can eat up a lot of RAM even on beefier desktop systems. I use a 16GB DDR4 kit myself and sometimes run into issues with the amount of tabs I usually have open for work. With Chrome being one of the most popular browsers around, I imagine this news will please a lot of people. Have any of you guys run into issues with Chrome memory usage?
