Google has found a new way to reduce memory consumption when using its Chrome browser on Windows 10, and it has decided to go a different way than Microsoft.
Google has been trying for a long time reduce RAM usage that Chrome does in Windows 10, and while the recent Chrome 87 update had performance improvements, it is still quite memory hungry.
Now Google engineers have found a new way to reduce RAM usage in your browser when running through Windows 10 and are working on PartitionAlloc FastMalloc, a way to keep active memory usage below 10% for certain processes. This would also improve RAM management and caching to improve performance.
You may still remember the SegmentHeap feature that is working very well with the new Edge. However, Microsoft noted that there had been a substantial 27% reduction in RAM usage in its chromium-based browser.
At that time Google also signed up for this feature but you could not adapt it to your own browser, which has left the project.
That is why Google is currently working on PartitionAlloc FastMalloc instead of SegmentHeap, a memory allocator to improve browser performance and security. In this way, those of Mountain View would improve the browser cache by enabling dedicated partitions, and when this feature is enabled, the amount of operations in Chrome will be optimized as well.
The feature is already enabled in Chrome Canary with what could be available in the stable version of the browser throughout 2021. It is one more attempt by Google to face one of the main disadvantages of its browser and where Microsoft has already taken a considerable advantage.
