The Great Suspender


The Great Suspender is a lightweight Chrome extension to help reduce Chrome’s memory footprint and is particularly useful for users that have too many tabs open at the same time. This extension will automagically unload each tab while retaining its favicon and title text. A tab can be restored by clicking anywhere on the page when it is needed. This reduces the number of DOM elements on the page and ensures no memory leaks or excessive JavaScripts are running.
