Modern, popular web browsers are known to eat up some worryingly amounts of resources, especially with a lot of active tabs. This can lead to the browser crashing, or becoming unresponsive. If Google Chrome is your browser of choice, then QuickKill for Chrome provides aid when it freezes and just can’t be closed.

Since the application is directed towards a specific web browser, you need to make sure that Google Chrome is on your computer. Moreover, Java Runtime Environment is another requirement, but it’s inside the installation package to save you some time, and effort.

Once installed, you don’t necessarily have to run the application, unless you want to see what it’s all about. However, just make sure to save all your online work, because Chrome is forcefully closed. On the other hand, only one of the three available methods does this directly on launch.

The application deploys three components for you to use as you see fit. It’s best to use them whenever Chrome freezes. One of them simply forces the browser to close, with no prompt, or other info provided.

Another alternative is to run the executable which also restarts the browser. This comes in handy when you don’t really want to lose any active tabs, because there’s a high chance Chrome asks whether you want to restore closed pages.

Last but not least, you can launch a simple panel, which although takes a bit more time to operate, it provides more flexibility. Required input can be any running process on your computer followed by the EXE suffix, meaning you can close nearly any application this way.

All things considered, we can safely state that QuickKill for Chrome is a practical application which is sure to come in handy, especially if you use Google Chrome as your default web browser and stay connected on multiple, content-rich pages at a time. It can be used for more than simply closing the Chrome process, deserving at least a try overall.
