Chrome Problems

Not sure if correct forum but hey..

So I switched from chrome to safari on my MacBook Pro a while back due to chrome running kinda sluggishly and it being such a power hog it was making my laptop run hotter and louder than it should be. Running Safari has been a million times better, however I still have chrome because I use the media hint plugin to watch US netflix (as safari doesn't let you). However recently when I open chrome it just takes SO long to load, literally netflix other just flat out doesn't open or takes a good few minutes - when on my safari it opens instantly like it should..

Is there anything I can do to speed it up a little? I was going to fresh install it, but its still got all my passwords and information saved which I want as a backup, and I didn't want to risk deleting it all.
