Yes - for some people, that's half a month of dinners.Such people anyway have more important tasks than sit in front of the net and open crazy amount of tabs ; )
BTW I am practicing freelancer. And i work for example through odesk. Even Philippians - who always be the lowest paid workforce now work
for 12-14$ per hour... So yes, there really exist somebody for whom this is a year salary, but most likely they not have a PC and electricity in a first place.
How much ram is in my spare computer that I am stuck using is the last thing on my mind. I am just happy it's more than 64mb. Been down that road before...2008, when the only working computer I had was an old 9x pc from 1997.

Christmas 1984, I bought my husband a beautiful gold rams head ring, very similar to this one
, but without the rubies.. It was our first Christmas together. He loved
that ring. He sold it yesterday morning to help pay the rent and bills. He got less than $300 for it. I almost had to sell my wedding band too, but Google Adsense deposited money in my account recently, so I may not have to sell it till next month.
There is no money for buying ram for my spare pc right now, no money to fix my main machine, no money for buying food. No money for anything extra till my husband has another job. He has been out of work since July 4th.
Early yesterday evening, after dropping off a job application, as he was returning home, my husband was hit by a car while crossing the street. He may be in bed for the next few weeks, so the likelihood of him finding work this month is going to be pretty slim.
We might not make it through this. We might become homeless and lose everything we own next month.
Do you think I am worried about how much ram is in my computer?
If you are earning enough money to not only survive, but afford to buy extra ram, consider yourself fortunate. Some of us are really struggling right now, just to keep a roof over our heads and our lives together.
Besides, this is a Chrome issue. I do not have this issue with any other browser. I can have a lot more tabs open in Firefox, Opera, K-Meleon...and even run all 3 at the same time with 20 tabs each...no issues.
This is a Chrome specific problem, which always seems to have trouble when there is more than 10 tabs open. If it were an issue with my machine not having enough ram, do you think the problems would carry over into full system slowness and affect other things, not just Chrome?
Also, Chrome does a process-per-tab (might have moved to groups of tabs per process in a recent version, like IE9 does) - which means it'll always use quite a lot more memory than firefox (there's pros and cons to the multi-process approach, but it's not a definitive win). Not everybody has or can afford extra RAM.
And don't forget, a process per active extension, too. This is why I refuse to install any that I can live without, which is almost all of them.
