Even with that usage which can seem excessive like the flash plugin using 125MB of memory, it's nowhere near the estimated 3GB you were talking about. You can monitor what it's using in the resource monitor, but also realize that chrome runs each page as a separate instance.

I don't tend to run a ton of pages at the same time, and even when I do with Firefox I restrict which sites use javascript and flash so I don't have some background pages constantly reloading flash ads wasting resources.

I think there is something wrong with your Chrome browser. For example, from your picture I see that this BBR discussion thread (only one tab, not including browser itself) takes 234 MiB from your computer. In my case Chromium (Chrome) browser the very same thread takes 72 MiB total (including browser itself, not just one tab, as yours):


Chromium - memory usage
