Google Chrome Voice Search Extension Memory Leak

Screenshot from 2013-12-11 16:57:26This was observed on Ubuntu 12.04 where just opening Chrome without going to any pages would see memory start to get eaten up. The cpu usage would go way up as well. The culprit was the Google Voice Search Hotword Extension. If you go to upper right three horizontal bars -> Tools -> Extensions and disable that extension, everything is solved.
