comment How to stop a YouTube process running in Chrome?
@dordio: I think the reason is that I have a lot of tabs opened, so when this is the case Chrome does not create a single process for each tab any longer, but starts using threads. In my case I have some tabs which can be selected individually, others which are grouped in clusters of three, four tabs (not related to each other by their contents). These share the same process ID. The fact that YouTube tabs are all grouped in the same process makes me think that this is not coincidental.

Thank you. A detail: is it normal that clicking on a single YouTube task, all the other YouTube tasks are selected as well? It looks like a YouTube task is a thread of the same unique process...

comment Performance issues, can I recover memory?
I do not reboot my computer often because it controls the nuclear power station in my basement ;-) The list of processes sorted by memory usage is: kernel_task (670 MB), followed by a list of 30 Google Chrome Renderer processes (7 MB - 300 MB). Now, Chrome creates a new process for every new tab, and I admit I have many of them open. However it should be the operating system in charge of moving some of these processes out of memory when not used for a long time or when resources get scarce.
