— And is not a native app


The fact of the matter is Chromium/Chrome is a tight ship and keeps getting tighter, and it is highly suspect to me to immediately blame it outright instead of the code running on it. My best guess for what was happening to the poor dude was buggy code made by Slack etc... more specifically an infinite loop, something known to eat RAM and CPU at the same time and be semi-hidden depending on how much abuse your machine can take

— Yes, JS is a GC language, but you should code for it just the same

— If you don't, the GC is not smart enough to compensate

— So that is all the reasons I was talking about devtools, and really investigating to the heart of the problem before spouting off about how terrible a technology is
