The Great Suspender Extension


Make your computer run smoothly by suspending the tabs you aren't using

A lightweight extension to reduce chrome's memory footprint. Perfect if you have a lot of tabs open at the same time.

Tabs that have not been viewed after a configurable length of time will be automatically suspended in the background, freeing up the memory and CPU being consumed by that tab.

➤ Whitelist specific urls or domains that you do not want to suspend

➤ Optionally show screen capture of tab before it was suspended

➤ Vastly improves performance when restarting chrome with a large number of open tabs

➤ Detects tabs playing audio and can prevent them from suspending

➤ Detects tabs that contain forms with user input and can prevent them from suspending

➤ Configurable behaviour when browsing offline or on battery power

➤ Built from open source code for full transparency
