The Great Suspender for Chrome is an extension which offers a simple function in that it will suspend open tabs, after a period of time, therefore removing all the web page content and saving precious system resources.
The extension includes a number of options that offer some flexibility. For example, you can set it up so tabs playing audio are not automatically suspended. If you want to open a tab to stream audio or listen to a podcast, the extension can avoid suspending these tabs. You can stop it from suspending pinned tabs and the amount of time you want before it pauses each tab, from seconds through to weeks.
You don’t lose the URL associated with the tab, just the page content. If you’re saving some shopping cart information, for reference, bear in mind that an open tab with similar content would not load after suspension with the same information. You can also export a live session (open Chrome windows with suspended tabs) just in case something does go wrong and you can’t resume a web page.
All in all, this is a powerful and useful extension for most Chrome users who like to keep open windows and tabs running for hours, days or even weeks.
