Chrome is one of the most popular and powerful web browsers in the market today. Every day, millions of people all around the world use Chrome for their browsing necessities. One of the beautiful features of Chrome is its stability even with multiple tabs in play. However, sometimes, when you have too many tabs open, it can make the browser lag and even unresponsive, leading to many of the tabs failing and as such, you have to quit the tab and lose all the work you have been doing on it.
