Why does atom run on 6 threads?!



When I start atom, and types ps -a in terminal, I get that atom runs 6 threads! This is not something I have seen before, anyone other that got this problem? And if yes, what can I do about it, cause my batteri drain much faster now, then before!


This is expected behavior and is inherited from Chrome’s multi-process model. Chrome and any other Electron apps should exhibit the same behavior.
