Multiplying open tabs in Chrome is the perfect recipe for turning a PC into a wind tunnel. To avoid this kind of problem, a start-up offers to remove Chrome from your machine and stream from a server in the cloud.
The promise of increased performance and speed
Mighty offers a new approach to the browser through which you can use Google Chrome on your machine without having a heavy impact on its performance.
The app’s promise is simple: by using it instead of Chrome installed on your PC, you’ll use ten times less RAM. Mighty says it is able to display hundreds of Chrome tabs without slowing down or freezing your machine, even when using web apps notorious for being cumbersome.
By moving all the processes to the Cloud, your computer only has to stream the display of open tabs in Mighty, as if you were using a regular web browser.
Each instance of Mighty opened on your computer relies on a server powered by an Intel Xeon processor with 16 virtual cores, 16 GB of dedicated RAM and equipped with an NVidia graphics card.
And to help you navigate the many open tabs, Mighty includes a keyboard shortcut for quickly switching between tabs.
Escape from online tracking
The platform also makes another promise. By using it, you will no longer have to suffer the display of advertisements and will no longer see the banners asking for permission to place cookies on your machine. The app can also alert you when an incoming Zoom call is detected, and allows you to search for your documents on Google Docs, both services benefiting from integration into Mighty. Everything is secured by an encryption system.

Unfortunately for Mighty, its price should be enough of a deterrent to only reserve it for a niche of users. It takes around thirty dollars a month to virtualize Chrome on your machine, a heresy when actors like Shadow offer a complete Windows machine accessible on the Cloud for half as much. Nevertheless, the promise is beautiful and the approach original.
