  • (2021-07-27) Hiki: Not work for the latest version
  • (2020-09-03) P N: Doesn't work. Clicking the extension button brings no menu, and makes nothing on my tabs. Or to be more precise, it makes briefly the tabs icons "jump" (as a sign it tries to make an action) and does nothing more. I need to go in the extension options page (not convenient at all!) to edit a whitelist. But it's only a whitelist, not a timer, or a way to make the extension working.
  • (2020-01-14) Area Vitae: The extention stopped working after the last Chrome update.

  • (2019-03-14) King Beast: Works Like A Charm!!! <3 DEVELOPERS Great Job! Love It!
  • (2018-12-14) Xao Fan-Tzilin: Not work in Vivaldi: there is no necessary option in the context menu of the pages.
  • (2018-07-13) TummaVic: The best tab hibernation at this moment for me :)
  • (2018-02-16) Marco Marks: Works.
  • (2017-06-14) Kris M: So far, very good but don't know how to unhibernate all - say to activate everything if I need to uninstall the extension so I don't lose everything. Or will it do it itself automatically? I run about 100 tabs. Tried a few others and really liked that this added a moon icon rather that clobbering the site icon - makes it much easier to find stuff as most of it is hibernated. THANKS!!!

    Today I updated portable browser Brave (became this extension has stopped working. Turns on, but at an attempt to hibernation the page happens nothing. On the previous version ( worked without problems.

  • (2018-06-20, v:1.0) Xao Fan-Tzilin: Not work
    Today, Opera has updated to version 55.0.2991.0 and the extension has stopped working. It turns on, but nothing happens when you press the hibernation button.
  • (2017-06-14, v: Kris M: unhibernate all?
    This question arises from trying other tab suspension extensions and losing a ton of tabs (fortunately with backups nothing was actually ever lost, but scary! Or does this automatically activate everything should I need to uninstall it? So far really loving it. Just posted review. I run 100 tabs with maybe 15 activated. I guess it would be nice to have a feature where it hibernated tabs after a period, but that is less important than not clobbering the site icon which I really like about yours. THANKS!
