Google Chrome slow with many tabs open – The Great Suspender

It’s really hard to manage so many tabs on Chrome — and Firefox too. But worse still is the obstruction in the performance of your computer, as the tabs continue to run background processes and feed on your system’s memory.

Google Chrome likes to use memory and give your processor a good workout if you keep a handful (or more) tabs open on a regular basis. This can have a negative impact on the speed of your computer, and certainly the life of your laptop’s battery. The Great Suspender solves that problem by shutting those tabs down when they’re not in use.

New version 6.21 released.Bug fixes: Tabs no longer suspend with wrong url. Fixed ‘suspend other tabs’ buttonNew features: Dark theme for night crawlers. Improved whitelist with regex support. Suspend actions can now be performed on groups of highlighted tabs.

Chrome Remote Desktop BETA – Chrome Web Store


Chrome Remote Desktop BETA is the first installment on a capability allowing users to remotely access another computer through the Chrome browser or a Chromebook.

The goal of this beta release is to demonstrate the core Chrome Remoting technology and get feedback from users. This version enables users to share with or get access to another computer by providing a one-time authentication code. Access is given only to the specific person the user identifies for one time only, and the sharing session is fully secured. One potential use of this version is the remote IT helpdesk case. The helpdesk can use the Chrome Remote Desktop BETA to help another user, while conversely a user can receive help by setting up a sharing session without leaving their desk. Additional use cases such as being able to access your own computer remotely are coming soon.
