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 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
