Overview

Stops Chrome from suspending tabs, and reloading them when you switch to them.

This extension automatically tells Chrome that every tab you open is "not auto discardable". This might help solve issues where Chrome kills more tabs than you would want to, however, this is not foolproof, and tabs might still get discarded if your system is out of memory. No configuration needed, the extension will mark every open tab as "not auto discardable" as long as you installed the extension and haven't disabled it. Want to make sure this extension is working? Go to chrome://discards in a new tab and see how every row has a cross in the "auto discardable" column. 👨‍💻 Open source: https://github.com/WorldLanguages/DoNotDiscard

works well so far for me. Chrome stopped showing the awful checkmarks from hell on the discards page after I got this. discarding should NEVER be automatic, manual discarding only.

Works as expected. Although you can turn the flags off as well for discard feature. That should work too. But I would rather have the extension.
