My computer was being very slow and then I got an error that my system is running out of application memory. But I was surprised to see chrome using 114 GB not MB of application memory.

Is this possible? That seems way too high. I had a lot of tabs open but not any more than usual. Could a website be causing this?

Google Chrome has its own task manager built-in that can let you see what's happening. Poorly written JavaScript on a website as well as extensive advertising and tracking could consume an enormous amount of RAM.

Menu -> More Tools -> Task Manager
