    Resolved [RESOLVED] Opening a New Window in Chrome

    I use Firefox mostly but need Chrome for only a few sites used for work, so I'm not too familiar with it. How do I open a new window instead of a new tab in Chrome? This needs to be a choice I make each time, not a permanent change. I found some Javascript solutions online, but I don't know how to use Javascript in Chrome.

    Right now, I just opened a new instance of Chrome from the Start menu, but I think that probably uses much more memory, and Chrome is piggy enough.

    You can right click a link on a page and select to open in a new window or you can right click the Chrome icon on the taskbar and choose to open a new window.

    A new window is a new window and uses the same resources no matter where or how you open it so no memory will be saved in any of these choices.
    Don't believe everything you think.

    Many thanks. I run 2 profiles of FF +1 on Chrome all day. Is there any way of eliminating some of those Chrome threads? I have 10.

    What do you mean by threads? If you mean chrome.exe processes, there are a few base processes plus one for each tab you open. That's why it doesn't matter if you create a new window or not.

    Basically, each tab has one process unless the tabs are from the same domain. The renderer has a process for itself. Each plug-in will have one and so will each extension that is active.
