Supposedly.  If you click the wrench, then select Tools/Task Manager,
it looks like there are actually several tabs/process (at least if you
have enough tabs), but there can easily be several processes
controlling separate tabs within the same window.

That too, but the reason they documented when introducing Chrome was
for stability.

I can say that Chrome often warns me that a selection of tabs[1]
appears to be stopped, and asks if I want to kill them; it more often
appears to freeze -- but switching to a different tab is usually
effective in getting some response, while I wait the issue out.

[1]  Not sure if the selection is exactly equal to those handled by a
single process, but it seems so.
