Chrome gets lighter and crash-free with new function; see how to test | Browsers

Chrome began testing on Tuesday (19) a feature that promises to save computer resources. Google's browser reorganizes tasks and postpones updates, user data writes, and other non-priority actions to save RAM. As a result, the program tends to be lighter and better handle multiple open tabs, reducing chances of crashes.

The news is still in the testing phase, available for now only in the trial version Chrome Canary. Here's how to enable the lightweight Google browser feature.
