    They could not be resource hogs if they were static images, or did not autoplay without permission.
    They need to fix the problem at the source, what types of content are able to be hosted as ads.
    CPU utilisation is a useless measure when hardware can vary so significantly.
    What makes something more impactful on a lower specced system would not be so on a higher specced one, but the impact of it should not be ignored in that case.

    I hope Chrome can become less intensive, always felt like I was frying my laptop's 4GB ram
