I have 7 windows with more than 600 tabs opened total. The whole point of adding this extensions is to have a quick restart of the browser, and to have one with low memory usage as only the active tabs of those windows would be loaded. When looking at the task manager it seems this extension opens a gorillion of new tab pages in the background, each with their subframe, even when told not to in options. Those are loaded instead of the pages I have opened, but this makes the browser... Show more

Finally, something that stops all of my tabs loading at the same time. However, your "new tab" option doesn't work - opening Chromium loads the last tab, waits a moment, THEN opens a new tab.

The extension only works for the browser startup case. After startup the extension actually shuts down itself.

"All tabs except new tabs or "special" tabs are discarded. Special tabs are those with chrome:// URLs, for example." Special tabs are also pinned tabs, right? And what about the startup page? Suggestion: Option to automatically load the startup page or a defined page (whitelist)

It works!. It makes tabs remain unloaded until you switch to them. CPU and memory are now available for tasks!
