chrubuntu: zram-config is working wonders if ram runs out… no more freezing desktop.

I’m using chrubuntu on a acer 710 since a long time and it works well, but sometime I ran out of ram and the PC freezes, this happens a lot with Chrome if I open multiple tabs. I was just looking for ways to limit Chrome ram uses but stumbled on the zram stuff and it looks like this helps. I was able to open 15 tabs with different pages and no crash.

sudo apt-get install zram-config

That’s it.
