That's a heck of a stretch to say they were "inspired" by
Postgres. A multi-process model is hardly a unique development
of Postgres, and it's not like we don't still have crash problems:
"process exited abnormally and possibly corrupted shared memory"
"terminating connection because of crash of another server process"
I suspect Chrome doesn't have the same shared memory requirements
that a database does, of course.
