Latest reviews

  • (2023-11-30) Malay Firoz: I really rely on this extension, but a few days ago it suddenly stopped working on my Chrome browser on multiple PCs. The Tab Suspender pop-up window shows that the extension is disabled even though I've tried enabling it multiple times. I've tried resetting the settings but that didn't help either. Even worse, my existing suspended tabs are now inaccessible, and there's no easy way to unsuspend them without getting the extension to work again. Can the developers please help? UPDATE (30/11/23): The extension is working now after v1.4.12 was released. Thanks to the developer for their support!
  • (2023-11-18) Jenci: I tried out and it didn't work. When I set suspend them all 147 tabs and it was nothing happened. It's so frustrating because very unusable. Tested on Chrome 119.0.6045.160 version
  • (2023-11-13) Alex: Cannot enable extension > Error in Popupsettings.get is not a function TypeError: settings.get is not a function at window.popupQuery (background.js:139:21) at popup.js:64:17
  • (2023-11-13) Heath Jones: This actually seems to be tied to the manifest version in the manifest.json. Might be worth a look. Anyway, appriciate all the years that this has been working and I would hate to see it go away. Also just to note, if chrome is installed fresh, this will no longer work. If you install an older version of chrome (not recommended for general public) you can get the extention to work again. This is regardless on what version of windows is running. I am currently running Win11 23H2. Anyway, I just thought I would share some light on my tshooting with this.

  • (2023-11-05) Nuutti Gylling: Does not work.
  • (2023-11-02) Davi Poncem: This last Update dont have the shortcuts .... to suspende all others tab, to suspend current tab .... really?
  • (2023-10-08) bun nyd: Works on Windows 10. Saved >50% of memory.
  • (2023-10-07) onur altuntaş: Extension done very well until this time. Recently, video players like twitch are flickering when the extension is active.
  • (2023-08-07) SHELLex: Из-за постоянного открытия окна расширения с запуском браузера, решил спустя очень долгое время(может даже больше года) удалить расширение. После удаление теперь все мои 149 вкладок в трёх папках - Сайт fiabciakcmgepblmdkmemdbbkilneeeh заблокирован. Видимо все 149 сайтов перенаправлены на этот а тот не очень хороший, от чего его Яндекс заблокировал. Это месть за удаление?) После установки расширение эта блокировка проходит.
  • (2023-07-27) Valentin Degenne: Design is old and not user-friendly, the extension does way more than just tab suspender which makes the extension unfinished here and there.
  • (2023-07-16) Adrian Olmedo: Excelente, ahora Chrome no se come mi RAM.
  • (2023-07-15) Don't do it: It does its job well, but it should have an option to not force you to use captures, like The Great Suspender (no track).
  • (2023-07-10) Anno Niem: It worked nicely, I primarily used it to speed up browser startup when lots of tabs are open. Sadly with the update to Vivaldi 6.1 it makes the browser crash right after startup before you can do anything with it. Not everyone seems to be having this problem. Maybe it doesn't play nice with specific websites? Tried resetting the settings but it still seems to keep data on which tabs were suspended even after closing them all and then reopening them from bookmarks. Is there a way to do a real clean install of the extension? Well for now I'm stuck sticking to Vivaldi 6.0 or I could start looking for an alternative. Any suggestions?
  • (2023-07-02) BG Bruno: it just work 😃 pros cons + shortcuts + automation + start states + session manager + full url in suspended url -- so when plugin is disabled still exist origin url - very small popup menu items - missing full disable image screenshot for better performance in suspended tab - missing disable url preview in content in suspended tab - cannot uncheck disabled whitelist from chrome icon menu specs • cpu : -1.5% every 15s • memory : 60 MB • disk : 4+ MB -- depends on feature " Suspended Screenshots " • network : 0 MB >> req features • whitelist with suspend interval
  • (2023-06-30) 武術有栖: 卵用没有,内存占用都没低哪怕那么一丁点……
  • (2023-06-22) Сергей Дорошенко: Добре
  • (2023-05-23) S B: This is the worst extension I have seen to manage memory. "Unsuspend All" option doesn't work on mac.
  • (2023-05-22) Hanggi Anggono: Great extensions but it would be nice if it doesn't store time mark when suspending a youtube tab, because youtube already store our watch progress anyway
  • (2023-05-18) Samo: I'm using an old laptop and I use my browser a lot so I have many tabs opened which makes it slower but at the same time I need these tabs for later use, bookmarking them is not efficient since I'll use most of them only one time, this is when this extension becomes so helpful and necessary for me to help me keep these tabs and at the same time prevent them from making my browsing experience slower, thank you so much <3
  • (2023-05-14) R. B.R.: i hope i am wrong, but i keep on getting some redirects when i enter some websites which i am suspicious may be linked to tabsuspender. the website is "sweetydeals.com". Is tab suspender code available for checking?

  • (2023-04-16) Amc CMA: I love this extension , but i wish there will be a firefox version :))
  • (2023-04-10) Nick Katz: Tabs disappear with this plugin. I have the latest macbook and running the extension in Brave. Tabs I have had opened for many months all of a sudden disappeared a few minutes after adding this extension. I thought I may have done something and recovered them through tab history. But it happened 2 more times after that within a few minutes. It seemed like the perfect solution, but clearly has issues. Removed, and looking for a plugin that works.
  • (2023-04-05) Nurihan Park: what does it mean by "discard tabs" in the advanced settings? is it auto closing unused tabs or just the ram cache?
  • (2023-03-31) Dung Luc: it almost reduce 85% ram usage, fast reload, good function
  • (2023-03-31) Honoré SABATIER: Je met 5 étoiles parce que j'ai utilisé cette extension à l’extrême, jour après jour pendant des années sans vraiment y penser. C'est dommage qu'aujourd'hui elle ait planté sans que je puisse en déterminer la cause et qu'elle n'ait pas su récupérer plus de 300 onglets suspendus une fois "réparée" par chrome. Il n'existe pas d'outils pour gérér des sessions lourdes de 300 onglets, et il m'arrive d'atteindre et de dépasser les 1000 onglets. Le gestionnaire de session serait salutaire s'il en était capable, si on pouvait revenir à une session quelques minutes en arrière, ce qui doit être possible. Edit: Quand j'en arrive à plus de 1000 onglets (1300 cette fois ci) je m'attelle à la lourde tâche d'enregistrer tous ces onglets dans mes favoris en tant qu'archive. Je dois réveiller et sauver chaque fenêtre une par une avec tous ses onglets, sur une dizaine de fenêtres. On ne peut pas récupérer directement l'adresse d'un onglet suspendu. J'aimerais vraiment avoir une fonction qui me permette de sauver en favoris tous les onglets d'une fenêtre sans avoir à les réveiller.
  • (2023-03-23) Ahmet: i would like to know if this addon's source code ise public/open source i highly suspect this addon has a built in "redirect" module interfering in between redirects from google search results to the final destinaton web pages. a redirect "tracker" domain caught my eye for just a split second right before i landed on "carrefoursa.com" , the redirect tracker url was "https://sweetydeals.com/?gclid=NbpaVNvgbuU2sDllqGK1tpbfNI1919B1ai30FJAqPwSfblVP1Y5abNP" google.com ->https://sweetydeals.com/?gclid=*** -> final url (which in my case was carrefoursa.com) to whomever it may concern, please acknowledge the potential thereat and act accordingly
  • (2023-03-17) mia: ty for help, even better than edge product
  • (2023-03-16) Kodi Nel: Necessary component of my browser now, good work.
  • (2023-03-15) T C (Chuck): Lassan három éve használom, ennél jobb és hasznosabb dolgot még nem telepíjtettem böngészőbe. Állandóan nyitva tartok legalább 1000 oldalt az ADHD-m miatt, ez a csodálatos plugin meg szünetelteti amit épp nem használok. Mindent lehet állíjtani, hibátlanul működik! I've been using this plugin for almost three years, and I've never installed anything better and more useful in my browser. I keep at least 1000 pages open all the time due to my ADHD, and this amazing plugin suspends what I'm not using. Everything can adjusted and it works flawlessly!
  • (2023-03-09) Kristol: Fail to suspend the Youtube site sometimes, then cause high CPU use.
  • (2023-02-23) Daniel R.: Netflix is flickering when I pause an ongoing movie. Yes,this extension cause it.
  • (2023-02-14) Maruhan Park: Are there any extensions that makes suspended tabs retain static data? I don't see why I can't scroll through suspended tabs
  • (2023-01-30) Khanh Dinh: the only extension to do what i want : not load new background tabs until selected. but its not consistent. only work in about 1 out of 5 times. improvement on that would be nice. also an option to discard older tabs when a hard limit is reached would make more sense
  • (2023-01-29) JosQi: I always give ratings but don't usually write comments unless is Super Good or Super Poor. After trying all similar plugins or software. this is the best plug-in/extension that has all functionality to fulfill every human need. ** THE BEST ** =Up-Todate. (this is how every human should check before wasting time. Browser keeps updating, consistent updated plug-in/firmware/extension to prevent code crash or heavy code is very important) =Hover and restore (really convenient, those sleep tabs can just restore by hovering the center big icon) =Suspend/Make it sleep based on your choice. (after some time, you will start to click the pinned icon on the menu bar for this function. I started to find this useful when ad-hoc jobs pop-up while in the mid of Researching/Online Learning/Shopping. Therefore, I just click the pinned icon to suspend all windows/tabs/others, then full force on the pop-up job. If back to the old time... need to save it all in the collection or close the browser to restore it later before working on heavy software like Adobe Premier, Photoshop, AI, 3D software, or FB ads....) =Limit tab open & auto Close (most people may think is useless, but is good for self-discipline & Chinese boss company & Kidz. we tend to drift away as browsers are very smart to show "you may also like" ads nowadays. in according to limit drift away action or complete task/research in time. this function is super good. Educate your kids to do that, as most pages, open only wanted a few lines or phrases. they can just select-> right-click ->save to collection. Be a tidy clean kid~ otherwise, keep buying tons of RAM is no use.) **POTENTIAL TO IMPROVE** =Automatic Discard Un-use Tab being ticked as default. (most humans don't go into “Setting” after getting anything. so this function ticked as default will cause them don't understand why tabs closed themselves. I understand this is a new function and thank you for your hard coding work, but to announce it in default ticked. will cause Human panic, they forget can just Right click the mouse at the menu bar to restore those closed windows/tabs) =Add in Close duplicated function. (Human memory is short, always open repeated links in different content, or the website likes to pop out in the new tab. adding this function to close those duplicated old tabs is very helpful for humans. full link match will do this auto-action, an advance function could be... after some ../*/*/ sublink or query strings only auto close as duplicated) =Group same domain Tab function. (since the Ori code is working on tab functionality. adding those tab-related extensive coding won't make the plug-in/extension heavy. it will be lighter than humans installing several plug-ins/extensions from different places/developers. this can be optional for human tick by themself.) **Conclusion** you or your team's thoughtfulness had create such a good plug-in, look forward to seeing more of your stuff.
  • (2023-01-04) Gabriel Fernandez: what about removing the extension entry from the context menu?
  • (2023-01-01) Лириам Вей: Проблема! Блокирует некоторые сайты. Никогда не подумал бы, что из-за этого расширения. Например не могу зайти в личный кабинет Blizzard или на форум. После ввода логина/пароля перебрасывает на окно активации аутентификатора, а потом обратно! А обратно не должно перекидывать! В итоге залогиниться не могу, приходится выключать это расширение и логиниться без него.
  • (2022-12-17) Auzuru: Well for me whenever I press "unsuspend all" it just completely stops working forever and I have to uninstall/reinstall to make it work again... But else it's a really useful thing. I don't know what's up with this app but every time I have it for a few weeks it just stops working, this time it wasn't even because of the "unsuspend all", I can't reopen suspended tabs, nor can I suspend tabs, however it says in the history that those tabs are getting succesfully suspended lol

  • (2022-10-06) Роман Бондар: Great!, Request: I'm missing an option of the settings section: "Design of Restore button". -- I need the following option #4 after the first three options: "No Icon, no screenshot - only page Name, and page addres on top center; (+screenshot on hover at Tabs?!)". This would be nice to add, especially with an optimal font size (not huge). -- Now I use the option: "Semi-transparent bar at the top of the page" no icon at center page. -- Thank you for such an addon for Chrome.

    Hi - please can you explain how this extension interacts with Chrome's memory saver? Are they completely separate or is there some interaction or interference? What are the benefits to having this extension on top of Chrome's memory saver? Many thanks Chrome's memory saver: When on, Chrome frees up memory from inactive tabs. This gives active tabs and other apps more computer resources and keeps Chrome fast. Your inactive tabs automatically become active again when you go back to them.

"Close tabs automatically" is indeed mentioned in the overview, yet it located at the very end, and the feature described as being "opt-in". Although, It is probably a new feature, as I do not remember it being present at the time of the installation. Pls, stick with the description and make it opt-in. BR, Roman.

    Hello, I love your chrome extension. I have just one suggestion. When a tab has been suspended, it no longer includes some of the same information that made is searchable with the "Search Tabs" feature. Can I suggest changing it a little to make tabs more searchable? Things like the URL and Title would be the main searchable things. Thanks so much!

    Whenever I click in a dimmed suspended tab it sometimes changes back to normal (and removes the little blue dot) even though it is still currently suspended. It has been like this for a few weeks. Other than that, thanks for the hard work on this really useful extension.

    Does this setting have any negative effect? Tabs are reloaded slower, but that is all? Screenshot about suspended tabs remain?
  • (2022-02-11, v:1.4.11) Arpad Orfi: Adaptive Suspend interval - how does it work
    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.

    Favicons not dimming upon suspension since most recent update.
  • (2022-02-05, v:1.4.10) Ethan M: Suspend background tabs by default
    I want all newly loaded pages opened, which are not active tabs to be immediately suspended. Does Tab Suspender support such an option?
  • (2022-01-04, v:1.4.10) Simeon Gorov: App broken my work
    The app suspended = closed my tabs and it is not giving me option to unsuspend them. I want all my tabs back. Instructions please!
  • (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!

    Hello, I love the "suspend current tab" function! isn't it possible to add a single web site to a list to autosuspend it always after a time? The contrary of a white list... 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)
    however... the tab hover previews are kind of crippled. Is there a way to show previews of the actual page rather than the suspended icon? This is for the brave browser (far superior to chrome). The flag in question is #tab-hover-card-images
  • (2021-11-19, v:1.4.10) Dean Chen: First tab of fullscreen sessions on macOS won't automatically suspend.
    First tab of fullscreen sessions on macOS won't automatically suspend. This happens in fullscreen mode and split-screen mode on macOS. Is there a way to add an option to auto-suspend these tabs? Currently I can only manually suspend these tabs by clicking the extension icon.
  • (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.
  • (2021-07-12, v:1.4.7) Bonnie McF: Auto-restore working again
