When I have about 20 opened tabs of Chromium I see the hard disk starts writing and everything start to freeze. I have to 'killall' Chromium. Previously I had installed google-chrome and the same was happening. Is it normal or it could be a bug? Someone experienced the same?
My laptop is a Acer Aspire E1-571G with i5 processor 2.6GHz 8GB ram. gentoo distro with gnome as graphical system
UPDATE: a big shame on me because I found out I didn't activate HIGHMEM64 config on my kernel (I don't know why) so I was running with ~2 Gb of ram instead of 8..
