Ubuntu: How do I properly restart Chrome?


I've been doing some WebGL development, and of course crashing Chrome occasionally along the way.

When this happens, WebGL in Chrome won't work until I restart my PC, which makes me think that even though I close every Chrome window I can see, it's still running somehow.

In Windows I am used to using task manager to ensure an application has actually stopped running, what's the Ubuntu equivalent?



The GUI for this is gnome-system-monitor (see this answer).

Or, optionally, you could go the terminal route (open a terminal with Ctrl+Alt+T):

ps -ef kill <process ID of the suspicious process>

(Process IDs are the number on the left)


sudo killall chrome

sudo pkill -9 -f chrome
