How many tabs do you have open ? Tabs use memory but should not use much extra CPU.

Shut down, start up, open Chrome, and keep only one tab open.

Wait 10 minutes . What is CPU usage!

If you have installed many extensions in Chrome like me, it will eat a lot of RAM for sure but it has not much impact unless you have only 2GB RAM.

Open chrome and then press shift + esc button then chrome's task manager will open then you can check which extension is using CPU.
