How can I improve the Chrome browser’s performance on a slow PC?

I am interested to know how I can continue to use Google Chrome on computer with slow hardware. I am now forced to use a Pentium 4 with 2GB DDR II Ram, which for today’s standards is obviously outdated. I really like Chrome, but on this machine I can only use Opera the way I want. When I use Chrome it makes a process for every new tab and extension which after the 4th-5th tab is an incredible memory and CPU hog. I normally use opera with ~20+ tabs open (and ~500-600 mb ramusage along with 20% CPU tops) but with Chrome I can’t even think about doing so. Is there anything I can do to lower Chrome’s recourse consumption?
