    If you look in Task Manager there are lots of Chrome background tasks.
    You mean in Details tab?

    Hi RK1997. Each process represents a tab, a plugin, an extension, etc. It is isolation, sandboxing in the browser. It separates activities in one tab from the rest of tabs. Its supposed to give better stability and security.

    An easy way for you to see what each process represents is to open the Browser Task manager in Edge, and compare the Processes ID's you see in the Browser Task manager with processes for Edge running in the regular Task manager. Matching PID's gives you a rough idea what most processes are for. See the screen below, that's with 4 tabs open and doing nothing. If I was using Flash in a website, you would see an extra process for Flash. A single website might have 5 processes running or more, depending on what you are doing. Compare PID's.

    Yes, Chrome has some backgroundtasks, and I guess that is why it uses more RAM than Edge, but backgroundtasks and services are not the same thing. I don't mind Chrome using some extra RAM if it is for sandboxing the addons like #413 write about. Yhe difference is not that big.
    As seen in this picture both Chrome and new edge is open on tenforum, and Chrome uses about 75 MB ram more than new edge.

    I really don't see the point in using new edge over Chrome, when I have sync-issues with new edge and not with Chrome. Anyone?

    You can stop Chrome from running services after you quit, I do not know about The new EDGE.
