Some people are frustrated by traffic (because they drive a lot), others by their classmates (since they are in school), and others… by the most advanced web browser out there! Let me try to explain the problem here… [picture credit: frustrated man (not me, obviously!)]
Once upon a time there was ONLY Internet Explorer, and there were many many toolbars you could add to this browser, until eventually it became a terrible browsing experience. I am talking about browsing the internet, by the way. Then, along came Firefox Mozilla (among other alternative browsers), and it was so slick – no toolbars, but rather simple, clean, loads fast, updates regularly, has themes, plugins, etc… Mozilla was amazing in its time.
And then again, Google comes with Chrome. At one point Mozilla was just freezing my PC, eating up all my memory, and it loaded so slow… even after disabling the plugins and auxiliary stuff, still slow. Chrome, on the other hand, top notch: quick, simple, no toolbar, clean, easy to load, no problem! Chrome was and is still the best internet browser out there, not only because of its safety and security but also its speed, cleanness, etc.
Daily Frustration: Life with Chrome
All nice and good, but at one point Chrome started loading slow, encouraging me to “kill some pages”, eating up all my memory…. In other words, the most amazing and the coolest browser in the world (in which I spend approx. 8h per day, since it’s my job) is now slowing down my PC, causing me to “kill the Chrome processes” from the Task Manager, and just frustrating me…. Here are some pictures, to see what I’m talking about:
Life with Chrome: 2.93GB Page File Usage! WOW!
Also: the number of processes Chrome generates (all named, Chrome, duh!) eat up my CPU, my memory usage, etc….
Life without Chrome: 1% CPU, 692MB Page File Usage
And we’re back to Photoshop taking up most of my memory space.
It’s not about how many tabs you have opened in Chrome (10 in the normal one and 10 in the incognito mode), but it’s about… the memory it eats up, the page file usage, the processes loaded, and the slowing down of my PC….
What is the Solution to This Frustration?
Such a good thing as Google chrome, giving me such a headache, every day! There are two sides to the solution of the problem:
- Google needs to sort out this issue! And as for me, at least once or twice per day I need to restart the browser. Reload all the tabs. And start all over again. Patiently…. and regularly!
- Why does this affect ME? Why am I frustrated? It’s something outward, but it can inwardly frustrate me. The way to deal with frustration is to turn to a living Person, the Lord Jesus, who is in my spirit! He is my life, my peace, and my joy!
The best solution to being released from frustrations is not to try to deal with them directly but to turn to the Lord and contact Him! When I call on His name, when I just take a break from the browser & from work, and I just touch Him, inwardly the frustration is gone! The browser may still be stuck, frozen, and not moving, but there’s no more frustration inwardly!
Touching Jesus is what Really Matters
Daily there are so many things, people, situations, and matters that frustrate us, wear us out, and put us down. But we can turn to the Lord by calling on His name and praying to Him, and inwardly we are filled with life and peace (Rom. 8:6). Outwardly the situation and people may not change, but inwardly we enjoy peace, life abundantly, and so much joy.
Who would have ever thought that the solution to the Chrome Freezing Problem is Calling on the Lord? I think that having a time with the Lord in the morning will definitely help you remember to turn to Him and enjoy Him in every situation!
… how about YOU? Do you have an experience of dealing with frustrations – by touching the Lord? Did you apply this key + get some life and peace?
