Why does Chrome do this crap?

So it would be hard to realize that it is a memory hog?

Because it uses separate processes for each tab to improve security and stability. Hence so many Google Chrome entries in Task Manager.

Peopled moaned about flash crashing a whole browser and making it insecure, so it was moved to a seperate process.
People then moaned about pages and javascript causing a whole browser to crash and lag every other tab, so each tab was moved to a seperate process.

As stated above Chrome does that so that (in theory) an extension or tab crashing shouldn't kill the browser. Every tab and extension is ran in it's own little sandbox.
