Google Chrome is the most popular Internet browser out there today, but it does have a small problem. It can use up a lot of memory and bog down your system when you leave a lot of tabs open. Luckily, there's a cool new browser extension that can fix that problem.
The extension is called The Great Suspender and it works by putting the tabs you're not using to sleep. Inactive tabs will appear blue in your browser window. When you want to use an inactive tab again, just click on the page to reload.
The Great Suspender is customizable to fit your needs. You get to set your own time limit that tells the extension how long tabs to be inactive before they go to sleep. You can select 20 seconds to 3 days. You can also add sites to an exempt "whitelist." For example, you can add Facebook to the list, so your Facebook tab will never be inactive.
To add The Great Suspender extension, to your Google Chrome browser, just visit the download page in the Chrome Web Store. Then, click the blue "+ Add to Chrome" button.
When the installation pop up appears, click Add. In just a few seconds, the extension will show up in the upper right corner of your browser window. It looks like a brown square with eyes and a mouth.
To customize your setting, click the icon and select Settings. You can also manually suspend and activate tabs using the icon.
