If you are a heavy Chromebook user like me then you probably know what it is like when your Chromebook runs out of ram. Maybe its just me but I find it rather annoying when I am scrolling and the page stutters. Now there is one thing that I have found that helps tremendously and it is called zRam. I have read that Google intends to enable this on the Chrome OS by default but I cannot be 100% sure. What this Linux module does is use a block of RAM for storing compressed paging files instead of storing them in SWAP. This makes the computer operate faster because RAM is much faster than HDD or even SSD storage. To enable zRam simply follow the step below.
- Type CTRL + ALT + t
- Type “ swap enable ” hit enter.
- Reboot your Chromebook
I have found this to help tremendously with the stuttering scroll.
