Windows 10 CPU usage increases when using Google Chrome

So here's an issue that's been concerning me for the past week or so. Whenever I open up Google Chrome and go to a website, the CPU usage jumps up to 75% (and even higher than that). My Windows 10 laptop becomes increasingly loud. But when I close it, everything seems fine. Any idea on what's going on? And what should I do?

It most likely is due to the content on the site. Some have lots of ad content it may be trying to load or video clips or even possible using your computer as a bot to do nasty things or send bulk spam emails. What site is causing you the problems is what I would check out. IF it’s questionable and you can replicate the problem with this one and only site, I’d stay away from it. like a bot.

    Try this one, Open Chrome Settings, go to Advanced then locate for System section. Here toggle off the two options, like "Continue running background apps when Google Chrome is closed" and Use hardware acceleration when available". Restart Chrome and check if that helps.

    Moreover, if you are flexible to use, you can try with other browsers like Firefox/ Ineternet Explorer or even Safari. And check if that same case happnes again.

    Also, Chrome, Edge, and IE are still spying on you. and reporting this information back to the various people. All of these use system renascences, and will cause CPU usage to increase. The least offensive one is Firefox. You can see the evidence of this if you use CCLeaner to remove browser trash and cookies.

    Sometimes, browsers ask for storing passwords, during that time, people click yes, without reading that one or unconsciously. If you ignore/say No to this option, it can not store password for this website. Be cautious when you surf on the net.

    First, you probably shouldn't do anything. It doesn't sound like anything unusual is going on. There is one thing you might do, though -- clear the browser's cache.

    As time goes by, pages and objects get stored in the cache to avoid downloading them during subsequent visits to the same addresses. In earlier times with much lower connection speeds, this made good sense. The value is perhaps not so great with faster connections today. However, it does reduce the load on servers also.

    Further, the sheer volume of addresses that are hit during almost any single site visit today, along with page complexities, now makes cache management a questionable feature. Each page and object is compared against cached pages and objects to check if changes have been made since the previous cache versions. (If newer, the cache usually is updated.)

    Over time, the cache can get very large and contain many thousands of items. With Chrome, you can 'Inspect' any page to get an idea how many addresses and objects are associated with it. And each individual object reports its version before being downloaded so the browser can search its cache to see if it already exists. This searching and potential updating can have a noticeable effect on speed of rendering and on how system resources are used.

    If it's bothersome, clearing various portions of the cache may give you hints to a cause of higher CPU and system activity. Whether or not reducing CPU and activity improves your experience will be subjective and only up to your judgment.
