Info 2 Memory usage setting in chrome

I ran across this in a tech article today:

This secret tweak will make your Android phone much faster
As noted in a post on Reddit and then picked up recently by Wired, users can quickly and easily increase the amount of RAM that the Chrome app can utilize. By default, the app can only access up to 128MB of RAM and then things start to bog down. High-end and even mid-range Android phones now have plenty of RAM though, so if you’re a heavy Chrome user, there’s no reason your experience has to be so limited.

Simply open a new tab, type the following string, and tap Enter:

Then, in the menu that pops up, change “128″ to either “256″ or “512.” Now tap the Relaunch now button and you can enjoy smoother sailing — and smooth scrolling — in your Chrome browser.
Being that we have 3gb I upped my setting to 512
