Ubuntu – How to identify which Chrome/Chromium tab is using up CPU

cpu loadgoogle-chrome

I sometimes have a bunch of tabs opened in Google Chrome, which I believe creates a new process per tab. I would like to be able to identify the tab that is using up the CPU.

Is there an easy way to to that?

  • Pressing Shift + Esc on Windows or Linux, will bring up the Chrome Task Manager with a row for each tab - you can sort by Memory, CPU and a couple of other columns.

    Alternatively on all OSes, you can find it through: Menu button → Tools → Task Manager.
