Should 'Google Chrome" being using this much memory?

When i have multiple taps open, chrome seems to run very slow and often doesn't load pages.

I am using the stable version of chrome,

my question is why is it using so much memory and is it normal?



I don't think it is my computer as here are the specs:

Yes it looks fine. It depends on how many tabs you have open and which extensions you have. This is mine.

Don't worry, that's quite normal for any browser. I use Firefox and I've seen it get up to 600,000k (though it's normally at around 150,000k). I've posted a screenie of mine too. Anyway, it's alright. Don't stress.

Oh, by the way, if you want to use all of 4GB of your RAM, you might want to consider upgrading to a 64bit operating system.

Your processor is capable of supporting it, unfortunately though you'll need a complete re-install of Windows 7.

Not necessarily, do you have a Windows installation disc? Or is your machine bought straight from a retailer?

I don't think there's a way then . Though I may be wrong, some other member should confirm this.

Not worth the trouble for only 0.5GB ram as 64bit os uses more RAM than 32bit OS.
and there is no way to upgrade only clean reinstall.
IMHO 64bit is only worth it if you have 6GB or more ram, or use softwware that is 64bit only. (for now internet browsers is 32bit there is IE9 64bit but its very slow and i recommend to use 32bit.)
i use 32bit on my 4GB RAM pc and don't plan to use 64bit. tested 64bit on same pc not worth it, it feels even more slow..
