^ Chrome:
advanced settings:
Privacy >Content Settings >Plugins >Let me choose when to run plugin content
-
Detect and run important plugin content seems to work quite well too (but have just started using it).

unfortunately some content refuses to run when the plugin is allowed.
And Youtube is now HTML5 video (can that even be blocked?)

I just started using chrome x64.  I found it is honoring the command line switch I used in chromium years ago.
 --renderer-process-limit=n   I have been playing around with the setting.  On my Laptop n=6 seems like the sweet spot.  But I found setting Fast Dial to never refresh the dial thumbnails seems to eliminate the lag I noticed.  With a setting of 6 as max renderers and 6 or 7 tabs open it seems to hover around 8 or 9 exe instances running.  With no switch it was around 11 or 12.

hmm. I have 18 tabs open in Iron portable, and there are 24 instances shown in the taskmanager. Maybe I should give your suggestion a go and see what happens if I limit it *and* open lots of tabs :-)

It may be worth a stab.  If it doesn't support the switch it should just ignore it.  Or quit with an error thinking it is a typo.  :)

True History - Wikipedia,

Looks pretty nifty!

FWIW, there are links to an English translation and an audio book via:

1969 Ford Mustang - Long-Lost Boss.jpgInteresting "stuff"

1969 Ford Mustang - Long-Lost Boss

Quote
John Grafelman bleeds Ford blue. He says he is "always looking for old Fords." He remembers reading as far back as the early '80s about the long-lost 1969 Ford Mustang Boss 302 prototype once owned by car designer Larry Shinoda. Now, wouldn't that be a Mustang to find?

Incredibly, this hardworking farmer from Peoria, Illinois, already owned that very Mustang. Unbeknownst to him, the '69 Cobra Jet fastback he bought through an ad in the local newspaper was that very car.

Speaking of the Mustang, here's a pure electric version that did 0-60 in 1.94 seconds: https://www.youtube....48&v=YCXuXDh9zrs
