With countless JavaScript-based websites, the RAM usage being lowered is only a great thing for people like me who have 20-25 tabs open in Chrome at once. Google has said that according to their research using Chrome 55 with websites like The New York Times, Reddit and YouTube using 50% less RAM on average than Chrome 53.

 

Google won't be releasing Chrome 55 until December 6, but there will be pre-release code released earlier if you want to try it between now and then.
