Google Chrome security update makes it RAM hungry

California: In order to make the browsing experience more secure, Google has updated its Chrome browser with a new site isolation feature.

With this security measure, Chrome is better guarded against vulnerabilities including Meltdown and Spectre, but at the cost of RAM usage, Cnet reported.

For now, the feature is rolled out to 99 percent of desktop and Google will be soon extending it to Android users as well. (ANI)
