  • (2020-07-13) Оксана Коч: Давно пользуюсь этим расширением и была очень довольна. Но после обновления и добавления новых возможностей по автозакрыванию вкладок, у меня закрываются все вкладки и вместе с последней Хром. При открытии Хрома преостановленные вкладки не загружаются, хотя все настройки стоят правильно
  • (2020-07-05) Daniel Flores: La mejor que he probado. Completamente configurable y no borra los iconos de las pestañas. Además te permite ver una preview de la pestaña antes de reiniciarla para asegurarte que esa era la que querías resucitar. Buenísima.
  • (2020-04-13) Николай Миронов: Anti-optimization. Freeze on startup. I have 25 tabs opened. Before extension installed: 1k usage. After (all tabs suspended): 1,1k + very high cpu consumption + low loading! Trying to restart chrome many times and change configs - no solve the problem.
  • (2020-04-10) John Gonz: It works, but it's using *4.3 gigabytes* of disk space in IndexedDB logs and on the Chrome history and bookmark pages (ctrl-h and ctrl-shift-o), you lose the ability to middle click to open bookmarks/history items in new tabs.
  • (2020-02-20) sim ray: I originally use the great suspender , that was great , but i can't know what the suspended tab is about i gave them 3 stars . now this extention solve the problem i like it ! 4 STARS !
  • (2020-02-20) free land: I find 100 of extension to pause load page on new tabs background before i click active but can't found. until i found this extension. good job!!
  • (2020-02-01) lw ss: 启用后在历史记录中用ctrl+左键或中间不能打开新标签页. 另外历史记录中左侧的清楚浏览数据也失效, 跳转到chrome-extension://fiabciakcmgepblmdkmemdbbkilneeeh/#fromHistory
  • (2020-01-31) James T Kelley: Missing the one option I installed it for, to discard all tabs on startup. Also does not have option to not suspend tabs with unsaved form data, and no option to not grey out suspended tabs. (I don't know why this feature is so common. Greyed out tabs are harder to see what they are, making them harder to use.)
  • (2020-01-26) captain obvious: Ok until you close your browser. After reload in fails to unsuspend your tabs. With Just a click on unsuspend the window you'll get memory overhead only. Anyway all loaded tabs won't be usable because you'll see only blank screen without any possibility to restore normal state.
  • (2020-01-09) Sebbchen: Genau das was ich gesucht habe! Ich öffne mir Youtube Videos, die ich später anschaue in neuen Tabs, was viel RAM und CPU braucht. Aber mit Tab Suspender werden sie quasi schlafen gelegt bis ich sie erst brauche. Super!!
  • (2019-11-15) 陳小文: Great extension. Can you injected transform:scale style BEFORE applying the user style? Thanks
  • (2019-11-13) ramocek: Świetna aplikacja. Pozwala na znaczne zmniejszenie zużycia RAMu. Zwykle po uśpieniu strony zostaje na niej zrzut ekranu. Czasem (szczególnie po kilkukrotnym uruchomieniu przeglądarki) zostaje biały ekran ale strona nie znika. Polecam wszystkim którzy jak ja muszą mieć otwarte 30-40 kart ;)
  • (2019-10-26) Matt M: Why is this not built into all desktop browsers by default???!!! This is my new favorite extension. I set it aggressively to 2 minutes. Those sites that need to remain active like facebook messenger and espn scoreboard, are whitelisted. All news sites can't sit their and play [email protected] / run events in the background ever again! I didn't know I needed this extension until I just discovered it! Now just thinking about it, it's obvious why chrome team doesn't implement it. ...ads, spying, and a hit to their revenue. I can't wait until that day congress outlaws all fingerprinting, profiling, and tracking...and sites are forced to go back to a subscription model.
  • (2019-10-18) Philippe Henry: For me its main use is to unload (suspend) all tabs excepted the current one, in addition to Session Buddy when I restore a session.
  • (2019-09-30) Nicole: It suspended tabs without freeing any memory. My task managed kept displaying the same data so basically it doesnt do me any good. I clicked on 'remove from chrome', which resulted in the extensions being removed together with closing all my tabs. Tabs which I had gathered a few days and needed open. Reinstalled the extension with the hope of the tabs reopening... but that didnt work. Pressing 'unsuspected all' didnt work either. SUPER ANGRY.
  • (2019-09-27) Jason Nero: New update enabled a setting that discards tabs. Extension now often crashes as well. Lost over a hundred tabs with no way to recover. Was a great extension, but useless now.
  • (2019-09-23) Rodrigo Elesbao: A very nice extension. (a little thing: for some reason, all the settings and whitelist are lost when performing a cache cleaning)
  • (2019-09-20) Yahya Artillery: I came to work in the morning and found out that the plugin somehow turned off and all my suspended tabs are lost, not even one item in the history, very sad...
  • (2019-09-02) Frank Hallo: perfect, with the previews best extension of its kind
  • (2019-08-29) Зайка Ушастик: Great app. Helps a lot with performance, and works fine for the most part, except when you have a youtube tab and it resets the progress upon restoring. Sadly, today when I booted up Chrome it marked the extension 'corrupt' and removed all of the compressed tabs that were there. Really frustrating.
  • (2019-08-24) Phelio s: not working now
  • (2019-08-23) Greg Lewin: Just CLOSED all the tabs, not suspending them - and they do not show anywhere so cannot be resumed
  • (2019-08-18) 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.
  • (2019-08-14) Anibal Ardid: rapido, completo y funciona muy bien !!!
  • (2019-08-11) Blaxe Frost: [EDIT 11th 08 2019] There is a BIG PROBLEM where the extension breaks and stops working, repairing just fixes it temporarilly Great! just one little problem, the tab icon sometimes becomes the tab suspender icon, making it confusing

    wenn man unsuspend all tab aus versehen macht bei vielen tab kann das sehr nervig sein, eine nachfrage bei Funktionen die viele tabs betreffen ob man diese wirklich machen will wäre gut. translate: if you make unsuspend all tab from many tabs it can be very annoying, a request for functions that affect many tabs if you really want to do it would be good.

  • (2020-05-26, v:1.3.8) Jason Gomez: Pretty serious problem with links
    Currently there seems to be problem where internal Chrome links are broken. These are links that appear within Chrome itself. eg. In the History page (Ctrl-h) the link at the bottom left for myactivity.google.com opens up as chrome-extension://fiabciakcmgepblmdkmemdbbkilneeeh/undefined#fromHistory If I use my middle mouse button to open as new tab, it works fine. Tab Suspeder is somehow hickjacking the link.

  • (2020-05-03, v:1.3.7) Victor Komp: Fvicons wont show
    Hi, since yesterday i began using this Chrome extension, and notice that almost all favicons in bookmarks bar are missing (showing the white circle instead), except the ones I visit. I tried cleaning Chrome cache for favicons in C:\Users\your_username\AppData\Local\Google\Chrome\User Data\Default but still the same.
  • (2020-03-30, v:1.3.7) Brad Templeton: Suspend tabs based on memory or CPU use
    Great tool, but rather than simply suspending based on idle time or patterns of use, perhaps it makes sense to suspend tabs that are using particularly large amounts of memory, or which are sucking CPU. After all, that's the reason we want to suspend tabs. And to counter that, there is little to be gained from suspending tabs with small footprints.
  • (2020-03-07, v:1.3.7) Xan Krigor: Optional screenshot
    Hello, can you make screenshot for page optionable? I have a lot of tabs and want to discard them as much as I can and want also remove screenshots. Right now I set their quality at 10%, but it still too much, I have 16 GB RAM and Chrome consume 12+ GB of it, even when about 80% tabs are suspended.
  • (2020-02-27, v:1.3.7) Alan Thorpe: Prevent Users from changing settings in Extension Options
    Please could we add functionality for administrators to prevent users from changing the after (in minutes) and number of tabs exceeds values. Our current situation is we have a small RDS server, where our users use Chrome and we use TS to keep the ram use down. However we are unable to prevent the users from changing the values above from 5 minutes and 2 tabs. Thank you

  • (2019-09-05, v:1.3.7) Dennis: TS is crashing (corrupt extension)
    Hi, In some cases Tab Suspender crashes my chrome and all tabs which were suspended get lost. Chrome reports that the TS extension is corrupt. My feeling is that is is some how related to a specific website or the number of websites.
  • (2019-09-02, v:1.3.7) Eric Woods: A new observation on Tab Suspender "crashing"/getting corrupted
    Hi. I get the same issues as others, but I have noticed a few details that may or may not be useful in isolating the issue: 1) The first time it happened, Chrome was already running. It may have been getting low on memory (something in Chrome leaks memory over the course of about 1 week). Then all of a sudden, it closed all my suspended tabs, so I went from ~433 tabs down to 36 tabs! 2) When I restore 324 tabs in 45 windows via Session Buddy, Tab Suspender crashes. 3) But when I restore ~30 suspended tabs in 1 window, Tab Suspender does not crash. 4) When Tab Suspender crashes, if I go to More Tools -> Extensions, my only option is to Repair - I think this looses all my settings (white list, etc). But if I go to this Chrome Webstore page for Tab Suspender, it suggests I "Enable" Tab Suspender, which works fine, and I do not loose all my settings.
  • (2019-08-28, v:1.3.7) Dale B: Corrupt on restored session
    This has been getting corrupted quite a bit when I try to reopen tabs with the chrome restore button or session buddy that were previously suspended before the restart or crash occurred. Seems I can repair the extension, close everything and restore with session buddy so it's not a major issue, for me at least with session buddy, but an annoyance. Hope you can figure out whats going as I LOVE this extension! Thanks!
  • (2019-08-19, v:1.3.7) Kareem Matariyeh: Corruption issues are starting to become annoying
    Seems every time I open my browser all my suspended tabs get lost and this extension becomes corrupted and I end up having to repair it. After repairing the extension crashes again if I start restoring tabs from my browser history.
