Perhaps the author or editor should re-read that headline.

It also doesn't make sense, even if the grammar is correct.
Surely you reduce memory usage when NOT needed, not when needed.

While your interpretation is understandable, the one that makes more sense, and the one that the author intended, is that Chrome will reduce its memory usage when the reduction is needed, not when the memory is needed.

I'll believe it when I see the results. So far I have not been impressed with what Google has done to improve Chrome. It's more resource intensive than ever, shows up more on a weaker system like a cheap Chromebook. Given how popular Chrome is, I don't think many see it's short comings as a reason to dump it. Hope to see improvements but it remains to be seen if users notice a difference.
