Close background apps 

Sometimes, even if you close the apps on your screen, they could still be running in your background. On your smartphone, you can easily set your apps to close whenever they are not being accessed. 

On your computer, you need to go to your Chrome Settings and click the "Advanced" option. After that, deactivate the "Continue running background apps when Google Chrome is closed" button. 

Check your Chrome's task manager 

Your computer has a task manager that allows you to check the apps or software running on your system. Chrome also has this feature, which is comparable to the one offered by Windows. 

To access this, you need to go to the three-dot menu, which is located in the upper right corner of your screen. After that, choose the "More Tools" option and look for the Task Manager. You can also access this feature via the Shift+Esc command. 

Once you are there, you need to check the apps using too much RAM. However, you need to be careful since there is some essential software there that can affect your computer once they are forcibly closed.  

The two methods are just some of the tricks you can rely on to lessen your Chrome's RAM usage. On the other hand, you can also lessen the tabs open, clean unused extensions, and refresh your browser's installation. You can visit this link to see their exact details.
