#Debugging Memory Leaks on browser - Force Garbage Collection on #Chromium #GC

Oscar Brito


Unfortunately I could not make this work in Chrome and Chrome Canary but it's working on
Chromium.

To enable window.gc() on Chromium browser console you just need to start chromium like this:


chrome.exe" --js-flags="--expose-gc" --enable-memory-info

Those flags enable the following console API, very usefull to debug memory leaks:



//print memory information
console.memory

// force garbage collection
window.gc()
