Tabs & Memory extension: Reduce the memory and CPU usage, free up system resources!
If you constantly have to keep open 15 or more tabs in the Google Chrome browser, you will find this extension indispensable. Each of these background tabs consumes a certain amount of memory that could be used for more useful purposes. Sometimes its ‘edacity’ may reach 3, 4, or even 5 GB. For powerful systems, this may not be a big problem, but if your computer is a little behind the progress, it may be having a rough time. It’s possible and even necessary to reduce the memory footprint of constantly open tabs using the Tabs & Memory extension for Chrome. Tabs & Memory is the most popular extension among users of the Google Chrome browser. This Chrome extension solves one major problem - too many open tabs consume tons of RAM and CPU power. The more tabs you have, the more memory Chrome consumes. This eventually might cause your PC to slow down and may even lead to blue screens. With the Tabs & Memory extension you can adjust suspension of less important tabs, or tabs that are not currently used to free up system resources. In this case tabs will be suspended after a stated period of time. This not only reduces the number of times the browser crashes, thanks to the reduction of resource consumption, but also allows you to retain all the tabs after a crash or PC reboot. This extension also prevents the browser from reloading many tabs at the same time. Another useful feature allows you to schedule tab auto-refreshing in case you need fresh data every second. We hope you appreciate our very simple and intuitive interface of the extension and rate us 5 stars!

I would like to have a keyboard shortcut to Suspend current page. Now, every time I open a new tab, I have to remember to open Tabs&Memories and click 'Never suspend' so that my reading/browsing experience won't be hampered when I visit another tab temporarily. So I would want default to be 'Never suspend' and have a shortuct to 'Suspend current page'
