Chrome Task Manager

Every once in a while my web browsing slows down, usually accompanied by the Macbook Air's fan coming on, a sure sign its twin-core i5 processor is being asked to do too much.  To find the tabs causing the most demand (because I always have lots of tabs open), I use Chrome's Task Manager, found in "More Tools".  In the particular case below, the Weather Channel and WDTN News were clearly the big users, so I closed them out to relieve the CPU stress and return the other tabs to their normally snappy behavior.
