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.
