Google Chrome has unveiled a convenient feature for users to monitor memory usage by individual tabs.

This addition follows the earlier introduction of a Memory Saver feature, enhancing the user experience on desktop platforms such as Mac, Windows, and ChromeOS.

When hovering over a tab in the Tab Strip, users will now see a "Memory usage" indicator alongside the page name and domain. This new feature simplifies the process of identifying tabs that are placing a heavy load on system resources, eliminating the need to navigate through menus.

This development complements Chrome's existing Memory and Energy Saver modes. The Energy Saver mode reduces background activity and visual effects like animations and video frame rates, contributing to more efficient browsing. On the other hand, the Memory Saver mode frees up memory from inactive tabs, keeping them accessible in the Tab Strip and reloading when revisited.

Users can conveniently enable or disable these modes in the Settings menu under the Performance section. Additionally, there is an option to designate certain websites for continuous activity.

For those who haven't received the update yet, it can be manually enabled by navigating to chrome://flags/#memory-saver-memory-usage-in-hovercards.
