    Currently sitting at 70, I tend to not over think it as much as I used to but still keep an eye on it from time to time. On my older systems I'm more prudent however.
  2. 56 but could do with a lot less

    121 right now. I remember spending a lot of time optimizing windows (98 and XP, that is) and google terms like "how to reduce memory usage" or "tweak windows". Those days are probably gone. I guess I would use a lot more time tweaking than I'd actually save.
  4. 3.5 :))

    Wow, and people argue that Google isn't invasive!

    That's the best reason ever not to use Chrome.

    53 without chrome open. I really don't like how chrome takes up so much space in the processes window. If I ever have to find another running process, I have to scroll through 20-some chrome processes to find it. I understand how chrome works but it'd be nice if all the same processes were listed together under a nested tree.
  18. :confused:!

    Of this, there can be no doubt. His prize:

    Wholly s**t that is funny to imagine. Congratulations on your victory, Quinneypoo.
  19. 11 process running but one is the task manager

    I think other browsers are heading in the same direction as well. Reason for this is, if a site hangs up or crashes a tab, the whole browser session will not crash.

    I think we should stick to not liking chrome in-line with our previous observations ;)

    68. 11 of them are Chrome processes.

    I have a fairly old PC so whenever I notice lag while doing things, I usually open task manager and look for dodgy/unnecessary processes.
