Kill the one that is causing the problem.

This will help you to figure out the problem on the go. You can always switch to another browser if this is getting more often.

4] Reset Chrome

If nothing helps, you may reset Chrome – or uninstall it and then reinstall it – and see if that helps. Resetting the browser will delete personal settings, bookmarks, etc. So you may want to back them up first.

Why is Chrome taking so much memory and CPU?

Chrome browser uses one process for every tab by default. If you open the Windows Task Manager, you can see multiple Google Chrome processes. The idea behind this is should any one of your tabs crashes, it will not crash the entire browser, as each tab will have its process running. Only that tab will crash. This results in Chrome consuming high resources. The other cause could be your Plugins.

How can I reduce Chrome memory usage?

The following suggestions can help you reduce Chrome memory usage:

  1. Close Unused Tabs.
  2. Run a Malware Scan.
  3. Enable Hardware Acceleration.
  4. Remove conflicting browser Extensions.
  5. Creating a new User Profile for Google Chrome.
  6. Disable the Site Isolation feature.
  7. Turn on Use a prediction service to load pages more quickly.
  8. Use the process-per-site switch
  9. Reset or Reinstall Google Chrome.
