    The weird thing is that Chrome is supposed to use one process per tab, yet I count at least 11 chrome processes in your output. So it might be a problem with Chrome running wild or something.
    True. But extensions take up processes as well. Anyway, Chrome's task manager will show what's what.
    Users can easily damage their systems by using sudo su if they aren't experienced enough.

    And OP may prefer to post top out as code rather than as an image:
    Code:
    top -b -n 1 > top.txt
    where "n 1" is for just one run.

    sorry if i wasn't clear on that. Yes, some kde dependencies were installed with kdenlive (my video editor) as well as some gnome things were installed since I like nautilus and gedit.

    BUT, is there any of these kde or gnome process's that I can kill?

    I agree, i often wonder if chrome has a memory leak like firefox did years ago.
