Note: I already tried all the suggestions from that question, and they didn't help me. Chrome freeze very frequently with ubuntu 16.04

I have Ubuntu 18.10 freshly installed on my laptop. Consequently, Google Chrome is also installed from scratch, meaning there are no too many temp files, cached data, etc. Symptoms: sometimes Chrome freezes only itself, sometimes it freezes the whole Ubuntu UI as well. It lasts from 5 to ~30 seconds and then it unfreezes. It happens only when I browse in Chrome.

How can I figure out what causes the freezes?
