Google Chrome rendering and MBP CPU usage going haywire

    I've noticed in Console that Google Chrome is always displaying undefined console messages and rendering messages.

    Today I noticed my CPU temp reaching 227 degrees F!

    I checked Activity Monitor and "Google Chrome Renderer" was using 96% of CPU resources!

    Is this a common bug with Chrome seeming to cause hot temps, slow loads, and other issues with Mac OS X? Should I be going back to Firefox/Safari combo?

    I've been using Chrome since I got my MBP and I've never seen the Chrome Renderer using that much CPU! Chrome has been running on my computer without being closed for about two weeks now and I have 15 tabs open and it's using 5% CPU.
