Image from store Tab Suspender (memory saver)
Description from store Tab Suspender extension automatically unload (kill/hibernate) inactive tabs. This action can free up your browser memory usage. When there are too many open tabs, your browser needs to keep their data in memory; besides, background scripts are always running. Using this extension you can define a custom time-period for inactive tabs to go to hibernate state and hence do no use memory or any kind of resources at all. Tab Suspender accepts following exceptions for your convenience: 1. Do not suspend pinned tabs 2. Do not suspend tabs that contain unsaved form inputs 3. Only auto-suspend if connected to the internet 4. Only auto-suspend if running on battery (if battery API is available) 5. Automatically unsuspend when tab gains focus 6. Open a new tab in suspend mode For bug reports please visit: https://github.com/rNeomy/tab-suspender For FAQs please go to: http://add0n.com/tab-suspender.html --- 0.1.6 Open tabs in suspend mode Do not suspend tabs if the number of opened tabs is less than a number (5 by default) --- 0.1.7 Tab suspender now works with single click You can now un-suspend (resume) tabs in the current window --- 0.2.0 Tab Suspender now has its own session manager Tab pinning status is stored and restore after reboot --- 0.2.4 Tab suspender now uses the native method to suspend tabs.

  • (2021-02-05) Jules Lee: Did not work. Could only suspend tabs manually.
  • (2020-12-24) Francesco: Fantastic! - very useful - lightweight - efficient - looks good
  • (2020-08-04) Solar Eclipse: Works as intended, doesn't spam you with donations or other nonsense, I really like it over other suspenders.
  • (2020-03-10) Nixinus — _ —: Super Мне понравилось отличное! Ето мое мнение!
  • (2019-12-25) Ramses XIII: Endless suspend. Great (NO).
  • (2019-05-10) Roland Spencer: Did a great job suspending tabs, but I could not unsuspend a single tab. Just did not work.
  • (2018-09-16) Andrey Sidorov: I had dozens of suspended tabs when tried to remove this extension from chrome. After removing extension it closed all of my suspended tabs and I can't restore any of them with "Reopen Closed Tab". Piece of garbage.
  • (2018-08-15) Works nicely, thank you.
  • (2018-06-03) Aume RRPMP: As amazingly useful as always. My only point is that in firefox it is possible to suspend a tab with right click menu and in google it isn't, i find it less user friendly.
  • (2018-02-19) Eshant Gupta: great
  • (2017-12-08) HO: Excelente! Liviana. Más opciones. Cumple con lo que promete. Excellent! Light. More options. It fulfills what it promises.
  • (2017-11-03) Liviu Rafael Nichiforiuc: It would have 5 stars as far as settings and look goes, but i only give it 1 star because it did not suspend any pages at all when choosing to manually suspend on my Chrome. This defect for this extension makes it no good at all.
  • (2017-10-28) JNeal134: Not working after last update. Just getting black screen instead of suspended tab page
  • (2017-10-16) Doctor M.: doesn't always work right
  • (2017-10-05) James van der Hoven: Great, until it started asking for permissions that clearly are not needed. Why would you need permission to change my bookmarks.
  • (2017-09-30) Luiz Luz: Uso em todos os meus computadores mas é realmente muito mais útil quanto maior for a limitação do seu equipamento. Conseguiu deixar o Chrome absurdamente leve num Core2Duo 1.6Ghz com apenas 2 GB de RAM (XUbuntu). Parabéns a equipe.
  • (2016-11-23) Azure Phoenix: It works. But the timer setting seems broken. Automatically suspend tabs after (in minutes):X minute doesn't seem to work properly I put 20 minutes, yet tabs get unloaded a lot sooner than that. When I just opened Chrome and waited for the initial page to load, the extension unloaded that tab/page. Did I used the setting properly?
