Mimehandler and Plugin Processes of Google Chrome
What are Mimehandler and Plugin Processes of the Google Chrome program on Windows?
Mimehandler and Plugin Processes are additional processes (also called tasks) initiated by Google Chrome to display content of Web content of the specific MIME types.
This tutorial gives you a good example of the PDF Mimehandler and Plugin processes.
1. Run Google Chrome on Windows and open this Web page: http://file.fyicenter.com/a/sample.pdf. You see a simple PDF document displayed.
2. Open the Task Manager in Google Chrome by pressing Shift+Esc keys. You see the following list of processes:
Task Memory CPU Network Process ID ========================= ======= === ======= ========== Browser 51,172K 1.4 0 3036 GPU Process 27,988K 0.4 0 6688 Tab: sample.pdf 34,468K 0.0 0 5860 Mimehandler: sample.pdf 26,340K 0.0 0 7540 Plugin: Chrome PDF Plugin 7,792K 0.0 0 6596
Now you know how Google Chrome displays a PDF document from the Web. It starts a child process called "Mimehandler", then calls the PDF plugin to display the PDF document.
