When Chrome apps attack
Or extensions or whatever you call them. Anyway, I noticed my PC has been dying a death recently, and with the launch of G+ things just got worse. I had it pointed out to me by my rather awesome co-blogger that apps / extensions / whatever all had their own processes running, even the ones that weren't on your app bar but were still enabled. Come to think of it, I had gone install crazy with the G+ apps and sure enough: Whoops. Six billion disabled / uninstalled items later (including one which was disabled but somehow hogging memory anyway) my PC is back to normal. Thanks, awesome co-blogger, for schooling me in the ways of not being stupid.
