Chrome is one of the most common web browsers used by a large audience. It is easy to use but at the same time a resource hog. The web standards and bleeding edge supports makes Chrome a developer friendly browser at the same time a resource hog. While a simple fix is disabling extensions that are not being used the other solution is to get [The Great Suspender](https://chrome.google.com/webstore/detail/the-great-suspender/klbibkeccnjlkjkiokjodocebajanakg?hl=en) which will suspend the tabs that have not been viewed or switched to for a certain amount of time that can be set by the user
The extension offers some easy to setup customization that can help tune the plugin to your taste it has reduced my Chrome usage from 4.85 GB to 1.65 GB which is great because I have many tabs open but focus for a very long time on one tab while watching Youtube videos or reading articles. Thank you for reading.
