Why does google chrome have so many processes?

Do those processes represent the extensions, add-ons, tabs? Thanks for any help.

    Addon's and tabs will use more processes. Chrome "sandboxes" things so that each item is running under it's own process, to the best of it's abilities, so that if 1 tab becomes unresponsive, the rest won't be affected, so that 1 tab or addon has access to that set of resources and not the whole system, etc.
