Stop Apps Running When Google Chrome is Closed [How to]

Google Chrome is my favorite browser now. It is fast, sleek and secure and can enhance our online experience further by installing applications from Chrome Web Store. Chrome has several built-in features to make it more usable and one among them is an option for running Chrome apps even after you have closed the browser.

This option is enabled by default and has many benefits to this. For example, you can get real-time alerts when new emails arrive in your inbox or a friend wants to chat with you, even after closing your browser.

However, one problem here is, if background apps continue to running when the browser is closed, it can eat away at your internet usage and system memory. Therefore, it is worth disabling this feature for better performance.

 To disable continue running background apps option, go to Options - Under the Hood and deselect the option ‘Continue running background apps when Google Chrome is closed’.
