If you use Chrome it is very likely that you know that you live with RAM at its limit.
This browser, despite its goodness, tends to consume too many resources and if your computer does not have enough hardware to support the demand for memory, battery and processor, you will undoubtedly end up with an operating system suffocated with a few open tabs.
For this type of situation, it is always advisable to look for the best solutions. Therefore, in this article we show you how to reduce the memory consumption of Chrome, avoiding that the browser consumes too many resources and above all, helping you to be more productive in your daily activities.
The Great Suspender
The Great Suspender is an excellent extension that represents a great help when it comes to reducing the memory consumption of Chrome.
It’s a simple but useful browser extension that takes care of suspending the tabs you’re not using, freeing up a good amount of system resources.
It is highly effective for those who handle many eyelashes, as it is not necessary to close them to reduce memory consumption.
The operation of The Great Suspender is quite simple, as it is enough to add it to the browser and set a time limit for the eyelashes to enter a state of self-suspension.
In other words, if you want all the tabs that you don’t use for a certain period of time to go into a hibernation state, you can simply set the minutes or hours before this happens.
Of course, you can also suspend some tabs and windows manually by simply clicking on the extension icon in the Chrome bar, or by right-clicking and selecting the option from the context menu.
Even if you choose the auto-suspend option, you can also create a white list of exceptions to avoid suspending webapps you use regularly.
It is worth mentioning that although the tabs remain open, when they go into suspension, none of their elements will be loaded, so when rehabilitating them they will have to load everything again, except what has been saved in the cache.
In exchange for some free memory, this extension is able to store a capture of the suspended tab, in case you need to save an image of the state of the page before going into sleep mode.
