Mac: Google Chrome Helper excessive CPU usage

Posted by jpluimers on 2016/01/29

I’m not the only one with a Mac having issues with Google Chrome Helper CPU usage, but most of the entries are for older Chrome versions. So below are the steps I performed. There are also pros and cons are after the steps.

In chrome://settings/content, under “Plugins”, I ticked “Let me choose when to run plugin content” (it was at “Detect and run important plugin content (recommended)”. That dialog doesn’t allow you to copy it’s content, so no HTML, just this screenshot:

In chrome://plugins/ I disabled this one:

Adobe Flash Player – Version: (Disabled)

Shockwave Flash 20.0 r0
Name: Shockwave Flash
Description: Shockwave Flash 20.0 r0
Location: /Users/jeroenp/Library/Application Support/Google/Chrome/PepperFlash/
Type: PPAPI (out-of-process)
MIME types:
MIME type Description File extensions
application/x-shockwave-flash Shockwave Flash
application/futuresplash Shockwave Flash
Enable Always allowed to run

Pros of these settings:

  • If you have a lot of tabs open (many of them suspended using The Great Suspender), then Google Chrome Helper uses far less CPU.
  • Youtube doesn’t use the Flash Player any more. It now uses HTML5 which seems far more battery friendly and more responsive.

Cons of these settings:

Posted by jpluimers on 2016/01/28

As part of some TFS related posts, I wrote about Find an installed tf.exe, then run it with the command-line parameters specified.

Below are some more batch files related to this. In each batch file, you can replace tf with call "%~dp0tf.bat" so the above batch file is executed first.

winforms – Where is the Tab Order Assignment dialog in Visual Studio 2012+? – via: Stack Overflow

Posted by jpluimers on 2016/01/27

Duh: same for VS2013

It is still available, you just need to add it back to the View menu. Tools + Customize, Commands tab, Menu bar = View. Select the menu item in Controls where you want to insert it, say the bottom one. Then Add Command, Category = View, Commands = Tab Order.
