If you open the Task Manager in Google Chrome on a Windows system as described in the previous tutorial, you see a list of tasks initiated by Google Chrome. For example:

1. Run Google Chrome on Windows and open the Task Manager by press Shift+Esc keys.

2. Go to https://www.youtube.com and play a short video.

3. Look at the task list on the Task Manager. You see the following task list:

Task                   Memory   CPU     Network   Process ID
====                   ======   ===     =======   ==========
Browser              120,072K   2.7           0        10564
GPU Process           67,656K   0.8           0        11060
