In a sentence...

Chrome running slow? Make your computer run faster by snoozing open tabs you're not using.

What's the problem it solves?

Chrome (and other browsers) can take up a lot of your computer's memory, slowing things down and causing your CPU to freak the eff out. This problem gets worse if you’re one of those folks who likes to keep their tabs open… indefinitely. The Great Suspender puts the tabs you're not into a kind of cryogenic deep sleep, freeing up memory and giving your CPU a break, making your system run smoother! 🏃‍♂️🏃‍♀️.

Why do we like it?

We're obsessive multi-taskers and frequently find ourselves with have 30+ tabs open at any given time (yes doctor, it's a problem). The Great Suspender runs silently in the background, snoozing tabs we’re not actively paying attention to, and then wakes them up when we’re ready to dive back in! This is the perfect kind of set-it and forget-it solution we multitaskers need!

Pro Tip: if you do want a specific domain (like your email) to keep running and never get suspended, you can whitelist it.
