Fact: Chrome devours CPU and RAM. But what to do about it?

At first, it’s just useful advice that many people don’t know about. First of all, you need to understand whether the extensions installed in Chrome are to blame for the excessive load on the computer. Often, it is they that lead to the filling of gigabytes of RAM and the expenditure of a considerable part of the processor resources on their maintenance.
To do this, press Shift + Esc in the Chrome browser. You will see the "Task Manager", but not Windows, but the browser itself. In it you can clearly see which tabs and extensions and how much load your computer.
Carefully study the extradition. If you notice that any of the installed applications is especially voracious, then the problem lies in it. Try to disconnect it when it is not necessary or refuse it at all.
Now for the effective way to reduce resource consumption by the browser. Type chrome: // flags in the address bar of your browser to go to the list of experimental Chrome features. On the page that opens, find the item Heavy Ad Intervention and change its status to Enabled. After that, restart Chrome.
What does this function do? For many, this may seem unexpected, but the option developed by Google itself is responsible for blocking ads that are hard to load, built into a huge number of sites around the Internet.
If the function determines that in order to load ads, it needs to heavily load the computer, in particular, RAM, then such an advertisement is automatically blocked and does not load. As a result, ads that are heavy for loading are not shown, and the tabs in Chrome stop loading the computer too much. The second plus is also obvious – you see less advertising.
This experimental feature first appeared in Chrome 80.0, which was released a few months ago, so most users most likely have this option. However, if the function is not listed, you just need to update your browser to the latest version.
