Don't necessarily blame Chrome for that one. I worked on a project a few years ago, a "web designer" had built the front end and I was supposed to make the back-end work. The page loaded fine (apart from the 20 or so errors thrown up in the console, that the "designer" had never looked at); but it then used about 1Mb every 5 seconds until Chrome crashed or Windows ground to a total halt. Never did find exactly what the issue was, but thinning out the 200+ stylesheets and script references made a big difference. Recoded the script to just use JQuery plus about 100 lines of custom code and all was well.

A lot of websites seem to be built by designers just throwing in every possible framework and widget because they can't be bothered to style something by hand and don't know how to do even basic scripting.

Sorry - inadvertently entered rant mode there...
