Sends your inactive tabs to sleep

Image from store Tab Hibernation
Description from store Tab Hibernation frees some memory and CPU on your computer by killing all inactive tabs. Your tabs won't get lost and you can restore them with a single mouse click. If you would like to fork your own version you might do so here: https://github.com/343max/TabHibernation/ v 0.1.3: - now using data URIs so your hibernated tabs won't get closed when uninstalling/updating the extension (sorry about that). v 0.1.2: - is now able to restore form fields sometimes - hit space key to restore a visible tab

  • (2021-02-24) Skarrp: It doesn't work it just wastes your pc memory don't download this
  • (2020-08-26) Аnna: It used to work great, but now it does nothing for some reason..
  • (2020-03-13) Daniel Ochoa: Not working anymore. Press hibernate and nothing happens on any tab
  • (2020-02-18) StarBlaze: EDIT: Used to work as of a few months ago. Now it doesn't work at all. Clicking the button does nothing. What a shame. ORIGINAL REVIEW: As advertised, puts all tabs to sleep except for the one you're on. Then puts a moon icon on those tabs so you can tell they're asleep. Saves me a lot of RAM, and saves me way more time (and risk) than killing each tab myself in Task Manager. Has a bug in which I'll press the "Wake up!" button and it will reactivate the tab at a page PREVIOUS to the one I put it to sleep on.
  • (2020-01-04) Danielle S: This used to work great but sadly since a recent update it doesn't seem to work at all.
  • (2019-01-11) Adusakful: Works like a charm, cpu usage dropped significantly after hibernating 9 other tabs I didn't need at the time
  • (2018-10-23) Mats Ljungkvist: Svarar inte upp på mina krav som operativ över Google Chrome. Ingen påtaglig reducering av konsumerat RAM minne! Jag märker i a.f. inget? Kontrollerat med IObit ASCU prestandaövervakarfunktion.

  • (2018-03-06) watdahecc: I didn't really see a point in it, really. It thoughtful, though. How could this be used?
  • (2018-02-01) Martyn Britton: this is malware.
  • (2017-12-11) tsukashu 2016: CPU Miner Trojan(こっそり仮想通貨を採掘させ、振り込ませる)のようです。日本語はレビューが少ないですが、全体レビューでは最近になって評価が荒れているので、開発が止まった拡張機能が狙われたのか開発者が意図的にやったのか…とにかくセキュリティソフト(フリーのでも十分)を使ってちゃんと削除することをオススメします。 また、複数のブラウザ(複数アカウント)をインストールしている方は、別のブラウザに入っていないか確認したほうがいいと思います。自分は、メインのChromeから削除した後、しばらく使ってなかったサブ垢のChromeを使ってみたら入ってました… そもそもどこから侵入したかわからないのが一番不安です(T_T)

  • (2017-09-30) Sina S: Like others said it's very useful and the browser itself needs something like this ,but this is not working as wanted and doesn't have any settings for automatic hibernation ,timer and... I had an idea about STOPPING tabs with one button but this idea is much better. and for the ram and cpu , it does it very great i had 55% and 45% of ram and cpu usage and after sleeping the cpu lowered to %15 and ram to 36% So it does its job very well but It needs to be improved and polished for a better user experience or it will get more bad reviews.Thanks for reading!

  • (2017-04-08) Space Stranger: At 1st it seemed to work, but now it doesn't wake up tabs. I click "wake up" and nothing happens, and URL is as if it is sleeping! Have to delete it.
  • (2017-02-07) Tibor Kovács: DE KELL!!

  • (2017-01-24) Burhan inandı: i dont even know how did it got into my browser, and i cant delete it
  • (2017-01-24) Amer K: Awesome extension. Simple lightweight code. Allows me to free GBs of memory from other tabs in one click. Not sure why people are giving it a low rating. I recommend it to everyone.
  • (2017-01-22) Maksim Kammerer: Неужели заведомо вредоносное ПО нельзя подвергнуть цензуре ? Горите в аду.
  • (2017-01-20) victor palencia: Es un Virus
  • (2017-01-19) Jeff Rechten: 1. It doesn't free up much memory at all, if any. 2. Cumbersome to use because it sleeps all the tabs except the one you're using currently, even in other windows.
