Stops Chrome from suspending tabs, and reloading them when you switch to them.
*NOTE*: Chrome MAY STILL SOMETIMES DISCARD TABS if urgently needed, and this extension can't control that. Please DO NOT LEAVE A NEGATIVE REVIEW if sometimes tabs are still discarded. This extension already does everything it possibly can to stop discarding, and will help to avoid discarding in most cases.
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. If it worked for you, please leave a review! ⭐⭐⭐⭐⭐
Since 2015, Chrome suspends pages to use less memory (RAM) — if you navigate back to a tab that's been suspended, it will reload. And starting June 2019, Chrome has removed the "automatic tab discarding" flag from chrome://flags, so it can't be disabled from there anymore. 👎
Now that the flag is gone, to avoid tab discarding, you can simply install this extension! 👍
This extension tells Chrome that all open tabs should be considered not auto-discardable.
Disabling tab discarding may cause higher RAM memory usage in your PC.
This extension doesn't require any special permission! Chrome won't allow it to read any browser data (e.g. passwords, bookmarks). No data is collected, stored or sent to external servers.
