"The Great Suspender" is a free and open-source Google Chrome extension for people who find that chrome is consuming too much system resource or suffer from frequent chrome crashing. Once installed and enabled, this extension will automatically suspend tabs that have not been used for a while, freeing up memory and cpu that the tab was consuming.

But The Great Suspender is not to be trusted any longer—so much so, that Google removed it from the Chrome Web Store in February 2021 for being “malware.”
