  • (2022-07-30) Jeremy R: Could you possibly add a full page screenshot instead of just the top part of the page? Alot of the stuff I do has me going to multi tabs just to compare/reference and would help a lot if I were able to scroll on the suspended tab instead of reloading it each time
  • (2022-07-24) Marouane Chahidi: Works perfectly.
  • (2022-06-21) Jonny MacEachern: Suggestion: Add an option for unsuspending all tabs in a group when one of the tabs in the group is unsuspended.
  • (2022-05-28) Masoud Ghorbani: Absholutly best tab freezer for chrome
  • (2022-05-27) RSJ: Tab Extender works good; however, it continues to suspend domains which I've wildcarded and added to the whitelist. Voice.google.com, mail.google.com/chat/ and messages.google.com. Anyone else having these issues?
  • (2022-05-18) Alvaro L.: There's always room for improvement, but the functionality is there, and it delivers
  • (2022-05-16) 平井伸治: This extension disables other extensions from working.
  • (2022-05-03) Solrak Rainbowarrior: Cierra las pestañas y ya no las puedes recuperar, al menos de una manera sencilla. He perdido todas las pestañas abiertas. Tienes que meterte en las opciones y buscar el historial de pestañas cerradas y abrir una a una, con el consumo de ram que eso lleva. Además pierdes el orden de las pestañas. Faltal.
  • (2022-04-21) Aaron Hardy: I have hundreds of tabs open at any given time. With this extension my cpu no longer reaches 60% or more when idle (I've seen a maximum of 2% when idle or 12% with video playback) . Very grateful and saved me a lot of headaches.
  • (2022-04-11) Michal Gorski: It DOES what it says it does. I tend to have too many tabs opened and now they are suspended. Thanks for that!
  • (2022-04-08) DaliS: The extension was created to reduce the browser's RAM consumption, but at the same time it itself consumes a considerable amount of it, sometimes being in the leaders of RAM consumption. Расширение создано для уменьшения потребления ОЗУ браузером, но при этом оно само потребляет немалое его количество, находясь иногда в лидерах потребления оперативной памяти. Win7 HP SP1 64 bit

  • (2022-03-29) MNML Dev: Does what it needs to do, but for some reason it causes youtube videos to have random video contrast issues...weird.
  • (2022-03-11) Stanislav Petýrek: Skvělá aplikace, funguje výborně. Využívám ji především na počítači s menším výkonem a pamětí. Ale mám námět na vylepšení: nové záložky (tab) vůbec nenačítat, dokud nebudou aktivovány. Samotné vytvoření "screenshotu" spotřebovává zbytečně zdroje a já mám ve zvyku si otevřít klidně deset a více záložek, než si je potom v klidu projdu. Nepotřebuji je mít všechny načtené. Věřím, že to tak mají i jiní uživatelé. Skvěle to má vyřešené Yandex, ale ten z pohledu situace na Ukrajině a hrozby, že obsahuje škodlivý software jsem raději odinstaloval... Moc díky tvůrcům Suspenderu :-)!
  • (2022-02-28) John: This is a bit difficult to properly rate, I haven't used the extension for the most part, only keeping it because my stored tabs are suspended by this extension. I'm rating it 3 stars because it does work, however, going into settings and choosing to turn it off does NOT turn it off, that option might as well just not even exist. I have turned it off, then on again to see if turning it off once more would somehow do the trick when turning it off the first time did not, but no such luck would be had, unfortunately. This extension's On/Off switch is just like my old wireless keyboard, broken and useless...
  • (2022-02-13) Anatolii Bakhtin: Before it I had a hard time using G Chrome, now the tabs are in plain sight, I'm very happy, allows me to keep control of the process of spontaneous surfing the web, while working ^_^

  • (2022-01-30) dallas virusremoval: First, I am not a "Bot", I have been using this app for for a couple of months after The Great Suspender ordeal. I tried at least 6 other TAB Hibernation apps that ware not even 1/10th as good as this one is. I was all about The Great Suspender and thought it was a perfect app until I used this app. The interface GUI is light & responsive & extremely fast responding!! I cannot believe that i never tried this app before. This app is Soooo much better in every aspect! Bravo ~ Reason for the review today is after doing some work at home on the PC for hours i just notices that my taskbar has "19" separate browser windows open.... All with a min of 20+ tabs open on each, I cannot even tell you the pure joy i have that my computer can even move the mouse or even navigate any pages, but it is working w/o any slow downs at all due to the perfection of this awesome app. To the developer ~ You have made a excellent app! Please don't sell out to another developer who can use this for malware. I want to give you a proper THANK YOU! and keep up the great work! ** People who have written this app does not do what is says are freaking crazy or just cannot use a PC, and to you the haters "You know who you are" << Lets go Brandon >> must be your motto! Thank you!
  • (2022-01-17) Shlomo Asaf: Amazing!!!!!! Everyone needs to know about this life saving extension!!!!!!!
  • (2022-01-13) Kosebamse: Почему-то, при запуске браузера переводит ВСЕ мои вкладки в режим Suspended, даже те, которые очень давно открывал, ещё до установки аддона. В том числе закреплённые, хотя выбрана опция "Не трогать закреплённые". Аддон работает, как хочет. Возможно, скоро и майнить начнёт, а ты подумаешь, что это Хром такой прожорливый))
  • (2022-01-07) Dave: Make sure you activate all of your suspended tabs before uninstalling because if you don't, the addresses are unrecoverable. Avoid this. I had to re-install this extension and activate all of my tabs before getting uninstalling again.
  • (2022-01-05) Simeon Gorov: I want all my tabs BACK!!!! Your app just closed them (not suspended for the time I don't use them) and the option to unsuspend all is not working! DO NOT INSTALL THIS ADD-ON, IF YOU DON'T WANT TO LOOSE YOUR TABS!!!! Developers DO NOT answer customers tickets!
  • (2022-01-01) Dry Dessert: Does not work anymore. It is supposed to work on tabs either for all tabs, only on tabs after activating the extension for a particular tab, or for all tabs the belong to URLs in the list. The only setting that works currently is manually activating for each tab that it works on. That is useless for me. I uninstalled and re-installed it. Does not work. Using Brave browser. Maybe it works in Chrome but not in Brave browser.
  • (2021-12-30) Ir Kurniadi: Auto close tab keep turning on,!! its great app, the tab stay there even I turn off computer, but until a month ago, the tab discarded by itself
  • (2021-12-29) William Oliveira dos Santos: É uma extensão muito eficiente, embora ela esteja causando um "mal funcionamento" em https://myactivity.google.com/myactivity/?utm_source=chrome_h
  • (2021-11-24) A: This extension literally "killed" half of the tabs instead of unsuspend them. My disappointment is immeasurable, and my day is ruined/ It takes their addresses (suspended addresses, that is, already distorted) and turns it into chrome-extension://fiabciakcmgepblmdkmemdbbkilneeeh/undefined I was lucky that I managed to save all the open tabs to bookmarks, but now I have to fix them all (clear their links from unnecessary text/code so that it will be possible to open them). In fact, I have to perform unsuspending of all tabs (more than 200) manually. Of course, I highly discourage this plugin. Unfortunately, in Chrome, extensions don't work as well as in Firefox, where suspending occurs without replacing the page address with another.
  • (2021-11-18) Marc Castells: It does what I wanted. Lately I've noticed some tabs doesn't load correctly when opening the browser. I have to manually delete a portion of the url to get them unsuspended. Today it happened with a Google Document that was suspended when I closed the browser. I usually have to log in to my gmail account when I open the browser. Maybe this is what enterferes. It cannot load the document because I haven't logged in to my account. I don't know. I also don't know if here is the best place to write a bug report.
  • (2021-11-14) Anshul Jain: EDIT 15.11.21: App has failed me. Stopped working, and I lost several hundred tabs because it says 'Your file could not be found'. What a waste. I used to like this app a lot. please fix it. ORIGINAL: Great suspender app. I particularly love the screenshot feature. Makes it easy to understand what the tab content was without reloading. I just have one important suggestion: 1) Please add an option to IGNORE tabs with unsaved 'form data'. It always tries to suspend an active tab with unsaved data, which leads to a prompt, and sometimes that causes Chrome to lag a lot. So that's the only reason for 4 stars else I'd give it a full 5. 2) As another suggestion, it'd be great if it could take a full rolling screenshot of the page (even in lower quality), so we can see more page content without having to reload it. This is great when researching topics because I can just suspend all research tabs and still have access to the data.
  • (2021-10-11) NonFungible Gaming: Tab suspender really help me not burn my gpu with my 4 browsers and 20 tab per browser setup. hahahaha Thank you for the service :)
  • (2021-10-08) Andhy S. R.: Very usefulll extention, thanks for make this extention 🙏
  • (2021-09-22) Bullseye: As suas configurações padrão fecham as abas sem eu pedir, tanto durante o passar do tempo, como no arranque do navegador. Por esta dor de cabeça e perda de fluxo de trabalhos, darei nota 3.
  • (2021-09-14) Евгений Решетников: Кто придумал вариант удалять остановленные вкладки? Так можно остаться без вкладок. Приходится каждый раз эту функцию вручную отключать в настройках. А так терпимо, бывает и хуже.
  • (2021-09-12) Thomas Schittli: I think it's a great addon, but because the important settings are missing a useful description, therefore it's dangerous. For example: what does "Discard Tabs" mean? In my undestanding, "Discard" means delete. And this option is enabled per default! Additionally, setting the time after which tabs are suspended is also very strange with the slider. At least, the slider should not allow to make steps smaller than 30 minutes, for example. I guess it does not make sense to suspend Tabs after 7 hours, 21 minutes and 30 seconds :-)
  • (2021-08-24) Andrei Iakimtchik: it would be amazing if when suspending youtube it saved the time at which it was paused. otherwise, excellent extension!
  • (2021-08-20) Guillaume Dufresne: A very good app that reduced my memory usage by HALF! Very good, since I open lots of tabs! I went from using 1200MB to only 600MB on average. Nice! I see people have had issues where all their tabs get deleted, I did not have that issue, I disabled the auto-close feature altogether in the settings. I would recommend you do this too.
  • (2021-08-10) Heiko Di: Grundsätzlich funktioniert der Tab Suspender gut, verursacht jedoch einige Fehler. Das Login bei www.ebay-Kleinanzeigen.de wird bei aktivem Tab Suspender unmöglich. Wird er deaktiviert, ist der Login auf der Seite wieder möglich. ähnliche Probleme habe ich bei Aufruf von Instagram festgestellt. Die Seite muste erst vollständig geschlossen und neu geöffnet werden, bevor sie wieder aufrufbar war. Hoffentlich lösen die nächsten Updates diese Bugs...
  • (2021-07-30) 윌로우: 좋긴한대 왜 저장기능이 없냐...크롬껐다키면 세팅이 초기화됨 시부레 ㅋㅋㅋ
  • (2021-07-28) -- -: Nach dem Skandal um Great Suspender bin ich heute auf diese Erweiterung gestoßen. Aber was zum Henker macht dieses Tool? Ich wollte, dass nach 5 Minuten Inaktivität die jeweiligen Tabs in den Schlafmodus versetzt werden. Was passiert: Nach fünf Minuten waren 25 meiner 30 Tabs einfach weg. Die Anzeige der zuletzt geschlossenen (wieso werden die einfach geschlossen...?) zeigte: Nichts. Völlig unbrauchbar. Ich komme auch über die Historie nicht mehr an all meine anderen, wichtigen Tabs und muss jetzt erstmal manuell alles wieder zusammensuchen. Ist das hier ne Beta-Version...? Edit: -> Vieles hing wohl nur an der Default-Einstellung, dass die Tabs sofort geschlossen statt nur in Schlafmodus versetzt werden. Support reagiert (auch auf Bewertungstexte) sehr schnell. Ich gebe dem Tool auf jeden Fall noch eine Chance.
  • (2021-07-27) Faheem Ahmad: needs to add support for latest tech
  • (2021-07-26) Sh: Saves roughly around 1 gb per 10 tabs suspended, most of which were youtube, so good job dev!
  • (2021-07-21) Stav Avraham: Works great and I love the advanced customization. Keep on going!
  • (2021-07-16) Abdul Aziz Al Ahmed: the plug-in stopped working, althouth I have the latest version 1.4.7 May you help to fix it?
  • (2021-07-12) Bonnie McF: Auto-unsuspend is not being triggered when clicking on suspended tabs in the tab strip. EDIT -- "Restore when switching to a tab" has been fixed with version 1.4.7!
  • (2021-06-24) Juraj Carmeli: This is the worst extension I have ever came across. There is a new "feature" that automatically discard tabs completely (not just suspend). I have no idea which retarded person thought that it would be good to activate this setting without user consent. I lost so many important tabs because of this. Simply piece of garbage. UI is also trash. Don't even bother.

    Hello, first of all thanks for the putting this feature together as an extension. We all know how memory hungry chromium is. I am a developer, who doesn't like to move away from the keyboard very much. So in that case when a navigate to a well suspended tab I have to move away from the keyboard and hover over the refresh holographic icon in order to reload the page. I tried CMD+R it just reloads the tab in the suspended state. It would be really helpful to have keyboard shortcuts to quick suspend and undo the same. Thank you,

I experience this for months fonally I disable the extension,after I saw less chart disorder,think some was saved before when i use the extension. Newly again I activate it for some days again I saw that my recently worked charts have gone discorded. I am very upset about, cause I should work on my charts again which I spent so much time before. and now should spend double time to do work.Please take a survey on your bad extension.

    Dear Developer, Please elaborate on how the Adaptive Auto-Suspend Timeout recalculation works. E.g. if I set 30 minutes to suspend, then in what time range the altered suspension time will be when the extension adaptively changes it? And for any particular page, the time constantly changes? If I use it more, the 30 minutes default time increases (or simply doesn't decrease... or can increase, but only in case if it is originally set to a low number, e.g 3 minutes)? Can you elaborate? Anyway, I am impressed by the functionality of this extension. I especially like the screenshot about each suspended tab. Awesome!
  • (2022-02-10, v:1.4.11) dire: Minimalistic Options?
    This extension's working perfectly for me and I have no faults with it, it's great, but I'd like to suggest a more minimalistic suspended page design option that is basically the 2nd or 3rd options, just without the bar up the top saying what the URL is, or the branding at the bottom right. The only other issue I have which is super minor is the design of the page design section itself. It's a little hard to tell which option is selected, and if you've even changed it or not.

  • (2021-12-23, v:1.4.10) Andrew Chapman: right-click suspend tabs?
    Auto-suspension works well, manual suspension is a bit odd though: would be great if we could right-click a tab and suspend it from the popup menu there. That seems more in line with tab UX than bringing the tab to the front, and suspending it via the extension. Small issue though, great extension, thanks!

  • (2021-11-30, v:1.4.10) Jegoopv Alekc: active tabs suspension, suspended original hrefs
    Great extension! Would be great: 1) To see original page url immediately at the page top as it was some time ago - is best solution, necessity to press "info" button to unhide it is too boring... 2) It would be great to to add ability to make active tabs to be auto-suspended too the same way as an inactive ones Thanks
  • (2021-11-23, v:1.4.10) creon levit: this extension is the best! (on Brave)

  • (2021-11-17, v:1.4.10) Anshul Jain: Doesn't work anymore!
    I've been using this for several months, but recently it just doesn't work. I suspend tabs, and most of those tabs do not suspend properly. I am unable to restore them. It does not take a screenshot, it does not save the URL, and sometimes it says 'Your file could not be found' or could not be accessed. This is really frustrating. I've lost dozens of tabs and wasted so much time due to this. I don't know if a recent Chrome update broke this or something else, but this is really problematic :/ Please fix it and advise

  • (2021-10-29, v:1.4.8) Jegoopv Alekc: A lot of "Renderer" process
    When "discard tabs to free more memory" checkbox is activated then I see in chrome Task manages a lot of Renderer processes (the same number as a suspended tabs). Not sure if it's ok for all of them to exist and to eat some memory scope. Thanks!
  • (2021-10-26, v:1.4.8) Jochem Huhmann: Display website title in suspended tab?
    There's already the line with the actual URL of the tab on the top, which is very nice because Chrome's URL bar only displays the extension URL. What would be even better would be the title of the page (which is only displayed on the tab which of course it much too short for that usually). So could you add a second line on the top with the title of the page/tab additionally to the URL? Most of the time I'm looking at the URL to make sure I've selected the tab I wanted, but the title would be just way more user friendly for that. I hate it anyway that with all the short tabs I always only see the first characters of the title of a page.

  • (2021-09-09, v:1.4.8) Peter Blanker: pinned tabs not being ignored
    as per the title, I have a page with pinned tabs that I don't want to suspend. Regardless of the setting "ignore pinned tabs" it suspends them anyway. I don't know if it makes a difference but I'm using the Brave browser instead of Chrome but is supposedly fully compatible with Chrome extensions.... I have 20 extensions installed and all others seem to work fine. Hope you can help...
  • (2021-08-29, v:1.4.8) Jegoopv Alekc: To suspend active tab too
    Reason: I use multiple desktops and multiple chrome windows, so it would be great to have ability to auto-suspend active tabs on those windows that I don't use long time too. Thanks!!
  • (2021-08-24, v:1.4.8) Loïc ZAREMBSKI: GPO settings deploy
    Hello, I need your extension to avoid a softphone tab to be automatically suspended by chrome. In found the way to save and restore settings but I don't know how to do it automatically using GPO (with a registry key, replacing a file or using a script maybe...), can you help me with that ? At least I need to automatically modify the whitelist. Thank you by advance for your helpfull answer
  • (2021-08-03, v:1.4.8) Chris Peacock: Renderer Task Excessive Memory Usage
    It took me a long while to figure out this was Tab Suspender causing the problem. In Chrome's built-in Task Manager, I constantly saw tons of standalone "Renderer" processes, each taking up 20-100 MB of memory. I wasn't sure what these were related to for the longest time. I had figured out though that ending all of those processes seemed to have zero impact on my Chrome experience, and would often free up over 1 GB of memory.

    "Restore when switching to a tab" has been fixed with version 1.4.7! Donate buttons/links still not working.
  • (2021-07-07, v:1.4.6) Bonnie McF: Full screen mouse hover restore
    Since the option "Restore when switching to a tab" does not always work when clicking on a suspended tab, could the option be added to "Restore on mouse hover" not just over the blue circle but anywhere on the entire page. This would be easier than having to always go to the blue circle. Thanks.
  • (2021-07-07, v:1.4.6) Benjamin Schäfer: Can't suspend local HTML sites
    You can't suspend a local HTML file like: file:///D:/FolderName/index.html So for webdeveloper it would be helpfull if you can suspend local projects too. ;-)
  • (2021-07-04, v:1.4.6) 学園都市: Incompatible with some dark modes. Flicker appears
    In the dark mode of some websites, such as github, etc. Scrolling the page after opening the plugin will cause the dark background to flicker constantly. Frequent flickering will lead to visual fatigue, this bug has existed for a long time, I hope it can be solved.
  • (2021-06-22, v:1.4.6) Jack E Z: Minor item (font size)
    The drop down display has wrapped lines that distort the display view. If I try to adjust the font sizes in the browser (Edge) I can get it to display properly but my regular pages get way to small for my aging eyes. Can you add a font selection to the settings or a percent sizing? Thanks
  • (2021-06-07, v:1.4.5) Rodrigo Pafaro: Restore Automatically still not working
    Still having problems with Restore Automatically. I have to click on the page to restore it. The "Restore suspended tab automatically when the tab becomes active/(gets focus)" is not working.
  • (2021-06-07, v:1.4.5) Benjamin Schäfer: Donate not working / Same position after un-suspend
    Hi. I figured out that if you click on your donate button it tells me that: "In App payments are not possible". Maybe you offer a paypal donation link too to catch those things? If you un-suspend a tab it normally stays at the same position on the side (vertical scrollbar). But for some sides it seems not working pretty good like for: https://pr0gramm.com/ If you scroll down through the image previews and you suspend the tab, it will jump up again after un-suspend. Maybe there's something not 100% correct in the "save position" code?! Could you implement the option to deactivate the "History"? Some people probably don't like that the history is shown here because they don't want that others can visit it. Maybe the same for "Session Manager". If you set the "Deactivate Session Manager" or "Deactivate Suspend History" it will unload the complete module (code) so that the plugin is more leightweight and it will remove the entries out of the drop down menu too. Means, really deactivate it not only hide the drop down menu and such things. I hope this was helpfull to improve your extension. :-)

    I'm still having issues with Automatically Restore suspended tab automatically when the tab becomes active, it won't restore unless i click on the page.
  • (2021-06-02, v:1.4.5) cra zy: Suspended tabs are randomly closing themselves?
    For some reason, the suspended tabs will spontaneously close themselves, and to make matters worse, I can't reopen them with recently closed history. I had about 50 tabs open when I left my computer, and came back to four. I can't even find the tabs I lost, and even as I watched, tabs I opened spontaneously closed themselves

  • (2021-05-26, v:1.4.5) Scott Rowles: Set settings with GPO
    Do you have a way to set the default settings (i.e. when pushing out this extension via GPO) to then set the timeout to 5 minutes instead of the default of 30?
  • (2021-05-24, v:1.4.4) Răzvan Harabagiu: Takes several seconds to suspend a tab, especially with video
    Youtube seems to be the slowest so far, open any random video and try suspending it, for me it takes about 10 seconds. During that time, I can't pause the video and switching tabs shows me blank pages often, and even if it doesn't, I can't interact with the other tabs.
  • (2021-05-23, v:1.4.4) Andreas: Probably corrupt settings slow down the app.
    After noticing that version 1.4.3 was installed (and going through hell because I had 350 tabs divided into groups...) and that Tabs Suspender was the problem, I realized that the settings had also been reset, so I set everything as it was before (still using 1.4.3), now with the updated version the problem has been solved, but I noticed some lag while using the app, which seem to be solved simply by resetting the settings.
  • (2021-05-23, v:1.4.4) ATSC: BUG WITH AUTO-CLOSE OPTION ON

  • (2021-05-22, v:1.4.3) Future Charlie: Auto close and discard suspensed tab.
    Update then enable new feature by default is stupid. Especiasly a feature with high impact like discard tabs. How about tell me what's new then let me choose to enable it or not.
