Overview

Increase browser speed and reduce memory load when you have numerous open tabs.

"Auto Tab Discard" is a lightweight browser extension that automatically reduces the amount of memory used by open but inactive tabs, helping to conserve battery life on portable devices by disabling JavaScript code and DOM events on discarded tabs. Preview: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=ityhxUPp3y8 Instruction: There are two options on the extension's interface to either discard tabs or release discarding (the "x" buttons) The features of "Auto Tab Discard" are: * Improves browser performance and reduces memory usage by automatically or manually discarding inactive, idle, or forgotten tabs. * Includes a list of hostnames or regular expressions that can be excluded from auto-discarding. * Preserves the discarded state of tabs when the browser is closed and reopened. * Indicates the discarded state of a tab through the favicon or title. * Restores the state of a tab, including scroll position and text box content, after it is released from being discarded. * Allows for the forced discarding of specified hostnames. The options for configuring whether tabs should be discarded or not include: * Pinned tabs * Tabs that are playing media * The presence of a power source * Unsaved content or user input in a tab The available plugins for "Auto Tab Discard" are: * Release the discarded state of the next or previous tab. * Release the discarded state of all tabs in the active window. * Automatically discard all newly opened inactive tabs. * Store YouTube's timestamp before a tab is discarded. * Permanently delete (remove) old discarded tabs that are inactive. Notes: * Unlike the "The Great Suspender" extension, this extension uses the native method for discarding tabs, which means that even if the extension is removed or the browser crashes, your browser will automatically restore everything for you.

great! the only thing i would like to have is to change Discarding options in: Discard inactive tabs after x in "seconds" instead of "minutes" because minutes is too long as a time unit and my average is 20 seconds to 40 sec to kill a tab if it is not active. And i cannot do that with the this extenstion even putting [0.33] in the minutes Text Input does not accept it as minutes format. please update it.

Almost 5 star! I recently noticed that Jira Cloud have been hogging up my CPU. So I started using this extension and it has effectively made my laptop 50% more powerful in effect :D ... Ok, thats a little hyped, but YKWIM! The only issue I have is when I enable "Immediately discard the following hostnames when their tab is not active" with Jira URL added to the input. I can't seem to temporarily disable these discards via the menu options "Disable Auto Discards globally for X hours" or "Ke... Show more
