Is there away to make Google Chrome be one process when having multiple tabs in use?

why would you want this? This is done to increase stability, I think the idea is, if one tab crashes/freezes that tab can restart without having to close all other tabs.
There is a way however to change the settings in chrome so that multiple tabs browsing the same site run in a single process. To do this right click the chrome icon in your start menu and click properties. Click the "Target" text box and scroll to the end of the line. Insert the phrase "--process-per-site" (without quotes) after the end of the text currently in the box and click "Apply."

From what I understand, and I could be wrong, but the way Chrome was coded is that each tab is it's own little sandbox. Often times browsers is one, regardless of the number of tabs and if one tab crashes, the whole browser does, like Safari still is one sandbox. For Chrome, since each tab has it's own little box, if one tab crashes, the Chrome browser shouldn't crash. So, for it to be one process might just cause chaos. As far as I know, there's no way to combine them. Besides, you'd be better off with the how chrome works, why worry about the processes?
