I have Windows7 and Chrome.

In the Task Manager, while using Facebook, the memory being used by Chrome becomes huge, like one process is over one million K. They are usually about 60,000 K or less.
This happens if I'm scrolling through a photo album with a lot of photos. You'd think thumbnails wouldn't require so much. Maybe some photos are being partially loaded at full size?

Do you often see a chrome process get so huge??

There have been complaints of slowness and people see "3-edge-chat facebook" at the bottom. (Sometimes the 3 is a different number.) That has different solutions, including going to Facebook Settings > Ads and turning off ads based on your visits. Some users say this doesn't help. Other articles suggest other things.

I have Adblock free, don't know if that's it.

I know this is trite, but compare Chrome to Firefox and see which one you want to use.

I had the same problem, I switched to firefox which is a much more economical browser while still being better than IE. Chrome definitely sucks the memory out of machine.

To the point where I was rebooting more frequently just to get Chrome to load pages without a significant wait.

I've been using Chrome for a while; maybe it's time for me to switch back to Firefox as well. I do visit Facebook a lot during the weekends.

I run both, but the high traffic pages are on Firefox. I need Chrome for "work".
