"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.



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.

Update: 11/03/24 "Discard Other Tabs in this Window" is poor and very rarely works. Instead I have to switch window and use "Discard Tabs in Other Windows" or "Discard All Other Tabs". Even then the extension is hit and miss. Needs lots of improvement for consistency. ----->>------------OLD Review ---->>------------>>-------------------->>------------------>> Excellent tab suspender. However please add the ability to only retain a certain number of active tabs without the condition of time. And also a manual tab unsuspending page, where the user is required to click on the page of an inactive tab to unsuspend rather than just opening the tab. A similar implementation to the workona extension.
