How to check if extensions are slowing your browser down

It's time to come clean: My name is Ian Paul and I'm a browser extensions addict. Right now, as I look at my browser I've got close to 40 Chrome extensions and applications enabled and about another 15 installed but disabled. I think some of those come as the defaults in Chrome, but I'm not sure how many.
If your browser runs faster after disabling an add-on then you should reconsider just how mission critical that extra software is. Sometimes extra functionality is worth a performance hit — but that's a judgement call each user has to make on their own.
