How big is it growing to? Do you have a space concern and a reason to keep it small?

Size right now is 350 MB, space is not a concern, but it seems the more it grows, the more slow Chrome becomes, ironically.

It seems my Google Chrome cache is here;
C:\Users\user1\AppData\Local\Google\Chrome\User Data\Default

Mine is 375MB in size.

It looks like there are some methods to limit it, based on modifying the shortcut for Google Chrome...but are some limitations like the fact that the shortcut is not used when the browser is launched automatically by the system.
