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.

comment Can I manually limit the %CPU used by a process?
Interesting. But with this utility I have to launch a program, find its PID(s) and manually use cputhrottle. Every time I launch it. Is there something that allows me to tell the system: “From today always run this program with a maximum of 25% CPU” ?

comment Can I manually limit the %CPU used by a process?
If I have a process that needs the CPU to do serious work, and this is busy with a browser I am not even using, it is not an optimal use of resources. And when running on batteries, having a process that keeps the CPU busy doing nothing is not good.

Now I know that the groups shown in the GUI are not the real ones ;-) Thank you!
