Tab Suspender (memory saver)


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
