If you want to know what's causing the jump you had ought to monitor Task Manager as you open each of the individual tabs you're using. 27% CPU and the amount of RAM you're seeing is unusually high.
I have both Chrome and Firefox open constantly, with double-digit numbers of tabs in each, and one with an incognito/in private window running and I have never gotten to anywhere near those figures.
I agree with the comment of jarlmaster47, but I would definitely want to know what it is that's causing that sudden kick-up in RAM usage and you can be pretty sure that it's going to be a single one of the tabs and it will show up either immediately upon loading the site in it or very shortly afterwards.

. . . the presumption of innocence, while essential in the legal realm, does not mean the elimination of common sense outside it. The willing suspension of disbelief has its limits, or should.
