Works until it doesn't. Please fix it so that it doesn't corrupt all your suspended tabs when the extension eventually and inevitably crashes. Surely there is a way.

make sure to unsuspend before you remove it if you plan to, broke 80% of my tabs and has caused all pages on chrome to go extremely slowly.

Love this extension! Had it for quite a few years. It doesn't seem to work nicely with grouped tabs though.
