I’m sick of Chrome eating all my RAM – it

That's it. I already had enough of Chrome. I, like the vast majority of Internet users, have been using Google's web browser for years. When it was launched almost exactly 11 years ago, Chrome promised a different and better way to surf the Web.

He convinced me to leave the ship from Firefox, which seemed increasingly swollen and slow. Oh, what a difference a little more than a decade ago! What was once a New Hope to surf the web has now become what he intended to defeat. It is a turn to the dark side and a disgrace that would make George Lucas proud (or at least hire a copyright lawyer).

These days, Chrome is as bloated and hungry for resources as its competitors. There is a reason why Chrome's desire for RAM has become such a popular Internet meme.

I'm lucky to have a PC that has 32 GB of those things. Now, that amount of RAM is, to be honest, excessive for most of the things I use my PC for. However, after a few hours using Chrome, Google's web browser will swallow gigabytes.

Yes, I admit that my fault is the organization of eyelashes. Due to the nature of my work (and the ultra-wide aspect ratio of my monitor), my browser may end up with the distressingly high amount of open tabs.

Even so, the resource-intensive nature of Chrome is unacceptable. And, while a growing number of available extensions has helped make Chrome a more useful and versatile piece of software, Chrome has become too bloated.

Lost functions

Perhaps the straw that broke the glass was the news this week that Google was eliminating some useful Chrome features. It made me wonder why I was putting Chrome. After all, I spent an increasing amount of time complaining instead of just using the bloody thing.

So what went wrong? To be honest, I would say that Chrome's great success has been its biggest downfall. The fact that it has such a large portion of the web browser's market share has meant that Google has become a bit complacent. The company no longer has to work hard to convince people to try Chrome. And because of that, I'm afraid the company has stopped innovating when it comes to Chrome.

Chrome's great success has been its biggest downfall

In fact, some of the times Google tries something new with Chrome, it ends up annoying its users, such as when it cuts & # 39; www & # 39; of the URLs. And, as I mentioned earlier, the growing number of extensions available to install for Chrome has resulted in a bloated and ungainly web browser. So, it's time for a change.

What are my options?

So what should a Chrome refugee do? Possibly the most obvious answer is to return, with the tail between the legs, to Firefox. While many of Google’s recent changes in Chrome have bothered users, Mozilla’s changes in Firefox have encountered widely positive reactions from their community. I have read several news about Firefox updates, especially related to privacy and security, which have made me seriously think about returning to the web browser.

Another option is, and I can't believe it. I am writing this – Edge. Usually, the only thing I use the default Windows 10 web browser from Microsoft is to download Chrome.

It may be a leftover dislike for its predecessor, Internet Explorer, combined with a lack of features and limited extension support, which made me never consider Edge as my daily web browser.

It seems that Microsoft could have made a worthy replacement for Chrome

Also, Microsoft's increasingly desperate pleas to stay with Edge that appears on Windows when you search and download Chrome simply made me even more determined to stay away.

And yes, I am aware that, complaining that Chrome is too swollen thanks to the fact that I installed too many extensions, and then despising Edge due to its lack of extensions, makes me a complete hypocrite. But isn't that the job of a modern web browser? Give us what we want, but protect ourselves from our stupidity?

However, now that Microsoft has created a version of Edge running on the Chromium browser (running Chrome), it seems that Microsoft could have created a worthy Chrome replacement, which offers some of the basic features and performance of Chrome (and, yes, extension support) without luggage.

Was I wrong about Edge?

After playing with the beta version of Chromium Edge, I discovered that there is a lot I like. Changing is pretty easy: all my saved Chrome passwords appear in the new version of Edge, and Microsoft has added some nice innovations to differentiate it from the Google browser, which includes a much better tab organization, something I desperately need.

So, maybe I found my Chrome alternative. Of course, in a few years I am sure that Chromium Edge will become as bloated and frustrating as Chrome right now, and I will look for a new web browser again. Maybe I'll dig up an old floppy disk with Netscape Navigator and the circle of life will be complete.
