Chrome Background Runner - Chrome Web Store
Item media 1 screenshot


Keep your browser open in the background for faster re-opening

This extension simply keeps Chrome running in the background. This extension literally has no way to access any of your personal data anywhere while you're browsing, its only purpose is to let you keep Chrome in the background. Keeps a background process open. This extension doesn't actually do anything. It merely allows you to keep Chrome running in the background even when you close all of the Chrome windows. Chrome starts faster when it is already running in the background. Note: Make sure that you have the Chrome "Continue running background apps when Google Chrome is closed" option set on.
