Windows 7: Chrome wont go home

Chrome wont go home

Hi,I tried out Google Chrome tonight,just to see if there were any changes,since I tried it out about 2 months ago ,I was very impressed still, with the speed,anyway I looked in on the task manager for something, and I noticed an awful lot of Chrome in there ,when I only had one page open on the internet and that was sevens forum,and nothing else,so I think when Chrome comes into your PC it doesn't want to go home .

Sounds like Chrome doesn't want to kill each pages process (I'm assuming you had more tabs up and then closed them?). I think IE does the same thing sometimes (thats right folks, IE actually did something right when they decided to have all pages run under different processes, like Chrome). It may have something to do with things like Java or Flash (or maybe JavaScript, though I doubt it) keeping the window active even after you have closed it and thereby Chrome still thinking you have the window open. No matter whats causing it, its obviously something that needs to be fixed.
