Chrome extensions, task manager



March 31st, 2011

Hi, Kathie here.

I installed Tea and Kittens extension for Chrome a little while ago (which blocks The Daily Mail's website). Very funny and cute - every time you follow a link to go to that newspaper instead it shows you a random picture of a cup of tea and a cute kitten pic. That was great except my tea consumption went up threefold. And sometimes I do actually need to read the news on that website, so how to go about uninstalling the extension? I looked in the options for Chrome but couldn't find it anywhere. Here's how:

In the address bar type the following:

chrome://extensions/

You can then disable and uninstall it from there.

(If you want to be certain it's not running type in
about:memory
and you can see the memory allocation.)

Chrome is handy in that you can see a very useful task manager by right clicking in the blank bit above the address bar and choosing task manager. This can be usuful if you have a tab that is misbehaving as you can end the process on that tab.
