Why does my Chrome browser slow when playing games? It’s fine otherwise.
because you are playing games. XD, slow the speed.
Browser games usually require lots of RAM memory and thus your computer is exhausted and chrome doesn't get all the oxygen it needs :)
chrome still have such problems
Because browser load plugins and load Flashplayer. Fix: you can disable all plugins you don't need.
When you play online games, 3 things happen most certainly-
1. You video card starts running at its full power to give you good graphics.
2. Your flash plugin starts which consumes memory.
3. Your browser isn't the application with most priority for your CPU. Running the game becomes the task with highest priority.
The 1st 2 things reduce the available RAM for your browser. Also, if you don't have dedicated graphics card, image processing also becomes tough. Hence, speed decreases.
It depends on what kind of games you play.
1. If you are playing a game like farmville then their is a major chance that your computer will slow down if you do not have enough processor power and ram.
2. Why does this happen is your question, what happens is these flash games are resource hogger they need a lot of ram and processor power to keep them running smooth, you can try to clear the cache of the browser and re run the game that will give you a bit of boost.
3. You can try to reduce the graphics of the game to run it smoothly.
Your computer specs?is it very old?
nope.. core i5 second gen.. 4gb ddr3 ram..
If you want your chrome browser to be faster, while playing games you should upgrade your hardware
As Sashritha Peiris said, your computer uses most of its powers on the game thus making Chrome run slower
insufficient h/w resources. most games are resource hogs and i would reccomend closing almost everything else while playing
are not heavy chrome not think it's that you can add some missing or may be due to internet connection
check you network speed and use of memory and you should stop other programs/games.
Because the games are CPU intensive.
when you play online flash content games, they act as a load on the cpu, hence increasing ram consumption leaving little for the browser to work.
Perhaps too many extensions in Chrome or too many sessions synchronizing via Google.
Is this not a problem in other browsers? I highly doubt this is specific to Chrome, but if so let us know.
Because games are resource hogs, especially flash games.
Possibly Flash problems. But it would also help you if you went to Tools < Clear Browsing Data and if you cleared 'Clear browsing history', 'Clear download history' and 'Empty the cache'. That should help too.
If youre are playing Flash-Games ... this will user a lot of your RAM and all free ressources your Computer has ...
Some Games works better with FF than others and some better with Crome ... increasing your local RAM could be helpfull.
perhaps for flash problems?
on chrome type
on the right side click on Details
scroll to Flash, then deactivate the ones that comes with chrome and let only macromedia.
it is also because of your internet connection, latency problems.
But I can't use flash programmed games after that right.?? (Online games)
depends if the flash games needs adobe plugin like miniclips games
you can play other flash games that do not need Adobe but uses Chrome flash player
because Chrome browser uses more RAM, you should upgrade your RAM
I'm using 4gb ram.. When I see the usage there is about 1gb space available too...
I agree. I was running a very CPU-intensive application, and even though I had several Gb memory available, all other programs, including Chrome, ran slow, almost stuttering. Turns out my CPU was pegged out at 100%. Use your Task Manager (Performance tab) to check. It shows exact numbers, and a nice graphical history.
I would back what Sashritha Peiris has said.
When playing games you computer's power is used up by the games. Thus chrome does not get the computer power it needs.
