Nas, extensions do eat up memory and slow down the browser. Think what would have happen to Chrome if all the extensions were incorporated as part of browser. It would be slower than IE.
That is why you need judicious use of extensions. I only install what I need. And turn any off temporarily when I am not using one for any extended period of time.
