Hey that's great, thanks. The task manager looks to show the CPU usage of each tab which is what I was after. What would be considered a normal amount of usage for a Chrome tab? I'm seeing the Tom's Hardware tab using up to 9%
I would say ~10% give or take a few would be fine for a Chrome tab. It's really determined on a case-by-case basis of what is "normal". My Tom's Hardware tab hovers around 7.0-10.5% when idling and of course jumps when I click things.
Case by case being the website I take it? That task manager for Chrome is a nice little feature, would never of known! Some websites that I stream music on averages 20-30%. What would hog the CPU when audio streaming?
Audio streaming websites are very dynamic, they require a lot of resources to function—from both server and client. I'm not a webmaster, but that is my best guess. It is possbile to use 30-40% of allocated resources from the CPU, but that is different from using 30-40% of all CPU power.
