comment Can Google Chrome be blamed for high RAM usage and lagging performance?
Yes, I'm pretty sure it is not Chrome's fault. But well I usually tend to have 20+ tabs, sometimes 100. So the sluggishness puts me off a lot. I've edited the question, love to know what you would think about that.

comment Can Google Chrome be blamed for high RAM usage and lagging performance?
I have done all that, plus minimized all memory hogging plugins. I love Macs, the best hardware-software combination one can ever find. But I haven't really experienced such sluggishness while browsing on multiple tabs when in other Operating systems like linux or even Windows, when in machines other than Apple's I mean. So I am kind of flabbergasted to see my 8gb RAM still not powerful enough for Mac! Does that have to do with non-mac memory?

comment Can Google Chrome be blamed for high RAM usage and lagging performance?
After plenty of searching, I realized that Apple does intend the way Inactive RAM should be handled. And many users suffer from this problem. So I guess there is no solution to this. My question is whether there is anyway to not allow chrome to waste RAM, as at times with just 10 tabs open the inactive RAM shoots up to 3gb and everything becomes sluggish. Thanks.
