better delete add-ons  go to chrome settings - extensions - remove unwanted extensions
or if not in use regularly just disable them for time being... can be enabled while it's required.

all the best

Close tabs that you no longer use. This is something you have with most web-browsers, the more tabs you have open, the more memory it uses.

Besides that also make sure that you always upgrade the browsers, not just the OS.

It is more likely a rogue or out of date plug-in or extensions than Chrome itself.

Follow Shaik's advice to disable extensions.

If that doesn't solve your problem, you can disable plug-ins by typing

chrome://plugins

into the Chrome URL line.

After how much time do you see this happening?

Do you see the same when you use Safari instead (visiting the same sites)?
