Last Chrome Beta for Android Update has a new "*Simpler tab switcher*" which is intended to work on low memory KitKat devices.

If you want to check it out, enable the chrome://flags/#accessibility-tab-switcher flag on your android phone and you'll be able to use this new tab switcher. 
As you can see below, its focus is on simplicity. It's fast and efficient.
