have you tried running chrome and a game? The os is smart about programs using extra memory and it shouldn't cause a problem.

It caches stuff, that's why it's such a fast browser.

A youtube video may be several GB in size.

You think 2 is a lot?

Search for an extension called "The Great Suspender" basically it just suspends unused chrome tabs after x amount of time meaning they arent sitting there open in the background using up your delicious cpu and memory resources

Sadness is the one true emotion, and happiness, well, that's just a lie, sadness is all many of us feel, and is all we need to feel, because having it any other way, would just be wrong, why be happy when you can just be miserable like myself.
