That's the normal behavior of Chrome.
If memory constrained, don't use Chrome. It does not play nice on low end systems.

You can use CoolNovo, PaleMoon or SlimBoat for old systems/netbooks.

Some browsers set up for multiple tabs even if you do not use them. So what you see is normal so far as I know for Chrome.

What operating system?  And how much memory do you have?

To use 4Gb it will be Windows 7 64-bit. Unless you are running out of memory (use Task Manager to see), you may not need to worry about it.
