Chrome seems to have been a dud from day 1. I tried it briefly, and it bogged down my 'puter like only Microsoft could have done previously. It's definitely a blemish on Google's brand as far as I'm concerned. Very disappointing.

The processes is the main reason I don't like chrome.Don't understand what these processes is used for? I just open chrome with a blank tab, it has seven chrome.exe in the task manager. It also crash very often in a period of time. Now, I mainly use Avant browser with Firefox engine, only one process and use less momery. Still use chrome occasionally.

I am having the same problem on my Laptop and probably these background processes are eating into my broadband traffic so much so that my month's quota has gotten over in just about a week Still investigating!

I guess, the cloud print feature will have to run in background else, your printers wont be accesible from anywhere else. Try disabling this feature in settings

NEXT UPCOMING BROADCAST
In conjunction with unveiling of EE Times’ Silicon 60 list, journalist & Silicon 60 researcher Peter Clarke hosts a conversation on startups in the electronics industry. One of Silicon Valley's great contributions to the world has been the demonstration of how the application of entrepreneurship and venture capital to electronics and semiconductor hardware can create wealth with developments in semiconductors, displays, design automation, MEMS and across the breadth of hardware developments. But in recent years concerns have been raised that traditional venture capital has turned its back on hardware-related startups in favor of software and Internet applications and services. Panelists from incubators join Peter Clarke in debate.
