In task manager you can see the various Chrome instances and how much CPU use they have. Can I determine exactly which tabs those are?

Each process you are seeing is not exactly each a tab you have open. They are web processes because that is how chrome splits up its workload to speak.

You can accomplish what you asked by opening Chrome's own task manager with Shift-Esc or Menu --> Tools --> Task Manager to see what you have running—including open tabs.

Hey that's great, thanks. The task manager looks to show the CPU usage of each tab which is what I was after. What would be considered a normal amount of usage for a Chrome tab? I'm seeing the Tom's Hardware tab using up to 9%

I would say ~10% give or take a few would be fine for a Chrome tab. It's really determined on a case-by-case basis of what is "normal". My Tom's Hardware tab hovers around 7.0-10.5% when idling and of course jumps when I click things.

Case by case being the website I take it? That task manager for Chrome is a nice little feature, would never of known! Some websites that I stream music on averages 20-30%. What would hog the CPU when audio streaming?

Audio streaming websites are very dynamic, they require a lot of resources to function—from both server and client. I'm not a webmaster, but that is my best guess. It is possbile to use 30-40% of allocated resources from the CPU, but that is different from using 30-40% of all CPU power.

Would that be by using 30-40% of resources but only at a low clock speed? Is that what would result in lower power consumption?
