Chrome 63 sacrificing memory for better security

The most popular web browser in the world, Google Chrome has already reached its 63rd version. A stable version of Chrome 63 was released later this week for desktop systems (Window, Mac and Linux). As usual, Google made sure that in the new version it packs some minor flaws discovered in the previous versions, and allows web site developers to use the latest CSS tricks. More details were published, as usual, on their blog.

For ordinary users, however, there will be no big changes. This upgrade is likely to be the most satisfactory administrators in larger organizations that Chrome will now provide a greater level of control over the processes running within it. The mode of operation called Site isolation brings both greater restrictions on running processes and the opening of multiple processes for interconnected pages (which have so far moved within the same process, such as embedded iframes).

Administrators and users will now be able to determine in detail how Chrome manipulates processes – but, when switching on the maximum “isolation” of each individual process, it will also need to be reconciled with a slightly higher occupancy of the memory (sometimes by 15 to 20%).
