Google Chrome browser high cpu usage

Hi guys, installed manjaro recently, but realised that when I have chrome open and check cpu usage using “top”. The thing is I wasn’t even watching videos or any sort, mostly just static pages(4-5 tabs max). Was wondering if there is some optimization I could do, since I didn’t have this sort of high CPU usage by chrome when I was on Ubuntu.

Hey @ally,
I have Google Chrome Stable from AUR and it works fine for my day-to-day tasks.
Link: AUR.
ps: I am no expert.

Is this maybe a problem with the latest Chrome release? (Did not search for a bug report or disabled plugins, to be honest.)

I noticed the same using Chrome on Windows (laptop fan turns into jet turbine after some seconds of even light use) which is why I finally made a complete switch to Firefox.
