My Google Chrome is behaving very erratically. I saw that Chrome was using over 100% CPU, so I opened Chrome's built-in task manager, which shows me that the task "browser" is using over 100%, and also the task for this Stack Exchange tab. It is jumping back and forth between these crazy values and very low ones (~1% level).
I have also been noticing that my computer has been lagging in general, sporadically. Usually it's fine, but then it will seize up and for 5 minutes or so I can hardly move windows or switch desktops without unbearable lag.
How do I go about diagnosing such a vague issue as this?
- 4x Intel i5-6200U (2.3GHz)
- 8GB RAM
- Mesa DRI Intel HD Graphics 520 (Skylake GT2)
It also probably doesn't help that my disk (256GB SSD) is 95% full, but still this behavior seems strange.
