    I believe it could also be chrome extensions that are enabled...

    Chrome opens separate process for tasks instead of running in one process like firefox would.

    This was one of it's main features when it first came out. If you have processes remaining after the tab is closed, it could be a plug-in container for video that went awry. Like they do . . .

    Currently I have about 12, with 9 tabs open. It's not virus if you're asking, unless of course you have some kind of virus
