Quickly exclude any single web page or entire site with just a couple clicks of the mouse. This is great for domains with text fields you don't want to lose your progress in or streaming video players you don't want to lose their position in when paused for long periods of time. See More
Saves an incredible amount of system RAM when configured correctly. See More

I don't talk about this extension enough, probably because the little narcissist I keep locked away in the dungeon of my psyche naturally assumes that everyone on the Internet is a "20 tabs open or bust" user like me and has already found it. If you fit the above criterion and haven't, then sit down and allow me to become your new favorite person for awhile. ;) I know you use Chrome or a browser built on its Blink rendering engine (Opera, Vivaldi, etc.) at least part of the time, it's unavoidable. I also know that you constantly have to be mindful of how many tabs you leave open because Blink uses an obscene amount of system memory just at idle, and with a couple dozen tabs open it can start to lag like a car running out of gas. But with The Great Suspender those days can finally fade into being distant memories. This little extension puts tabs you haven't gotten back to in a while into hibernation, freeing the memory and letting your browser find its second wind. Can you imagine?? You really can't, it has to be experienced to be believed. Just don't come looking for me when they get around to starting a 12-Step program for internet addicts and your family holds an intervention, forcing you to start attending; at that point, you're on your own.

It takes all of your tabs (choose between all/all-except-current/current/all-to-right/all-to-left) and turns them into links in a special OneTab tab where you can further manage your tabs by dividing them into groups, removing duplicates and securing them so that they can't be removed unless unsecured.

It's easy to forget that clicking on the OneTab button in the extensions bar doesn't show you options – it saves your current session by closing all your tabs in the given browser window. That might be slightly annoying if you were trying to access the OneTab dashboard or view OneTab options instead of trying to save your current session in OneTab, but this is only a minor inconvenience given how easy it is to restore your session. See More
The OneTab dashboard only appears the first time you open your browser after quitting, although you can also make it appear through the extension button in the extensions bar. This is less invasive behavior than the Chrome extensions that appear every time you open a new browser tab. See More
This is not so much a con as much as it is a heads up for those who use OneTab as a form of transient digital bookmarking (like me!). When you click on a tab/link in any given OneTab session, that will cause it to disappear from the list of tabs in that section. It would be nice if there was an interim period or separate place where the link is still visible/accessible. That or it would be nice to have a version history of past closed tabs/links and sessions. See More
OneTab provides just the right amount of meta-info about the tabs you've saved. It groups them by session, and tells you how many tabs are in each session, as well as the date the session was created. Every saved tab includes the bookmarked favicon and page title. See More
It breaks far too often for my taste, and the second-class support for browsers like Firefox and Opera is positively criminal, but I have yet to find a better solution for securing and distributing all my various credentials between devices and operating systems. Despite all the headaches and not having even gotten a whiff of new features to be added in years, it usually gets the job done and for that I'm grateful. See More

AdBlock+ tends to use a lot of memory, which has been documented in many use cases as well as admitted by AdBlock themselves. Considering there are alternatives out there that can block ads successfully with half the RAM usage as AdBlock, one has to wonder why this is a problem specific to AdBock. See More
