I can see this being useful for computers with limited resources (RAM and CPU), but I won't see the need for computers with like 6-8GB+ of RAM and a decent CPU.

They have been aware and there is a team addressing it according to this article.

@aura I have 12 GB of RAM and a decent processor. I just get annoyed as heck there are 30 plus instances of Chrome running in task manager. But I only have 12 tabs open, but have closed at least 15 since I've had chrome open. Sure it's not a major issue with the amount of RAM I have. But WHY the 'leakage'?? It's ridiculous.

Because Google Chrome also creates a process for every individual extension and plugin running. Hence why. That's part of the whole "sandbox" aspect of Chrome :P

If you use the built-in Task Manager in Google Chrome, it should tell you what is currently active.
