Should well be of interest for all Google Chrome users, which can become a memory hogger. I use it for work, so necessity dictates… and here’s a potentially frustration-saving extension that freezes inactive tabs.
Chrome extension ‘ The Great Suspender’ temporarily suspends any tabs you’re not using, thus saving any memory drain.
You can set the time before they are ‘frozen’ and you can ‘whitelist’ any you want to keep ‘alive’, well worth a try.
Have had it installed for a week and it is already making a difference to my machine’s speed and memory use.
