I think Chrome can also be a bit onerous with regards to threading: Chrome is the first multi-threaded browser, meaning that each open tab is actually its own process, running in its own portion of memory, and the processor has to figure out how to slice up its resources. With other browsers, the web browser helps to figure out what tabs to load and when and how to allocate resources.
I have a quad-core processor at work that runs Chrome just fine. I have a dual-core at home that struggles with it.
