When I asked my friends about their choice of the Browser then it were the Firefox and Chrome that stood before the other browsers. Clearly these two browsers are the most used browsers today. While people use Firefox for its add-on repository, Chrome is used majorly because of it plain and minimalistic interface which is loved by many people.

I liked Firefox earlier a lot but now I have been majorly using Chrome but in both these browsers I have hated the CPU and memory consumption that these browsers use. Also for someone like me who works with most tabs open, the browsers tend to consume lots of computer resources. I know several people who even don’t close the tab after they have finished working upon. This needlessly increases the memory utilization which could have been avoided.

Here is a chrome extension called TabMemFree which can unload the inactive for you after the specified time of inactivity. This is extremely helpful for someone who has a tab still opened even after the completion of work as this would help them in saving the computer resources and memory.

You just need to install the extension, visit the settings and set the Timeout and Check period as per your needs and this will check the inactivity of the tab after the set time and unload the tab automatically. It will however don’t change the tab title and icon, for if you need to come back on it the page will reload instantly.

TabMemFree saves lot of computer memory as it will automatically unload the tab for you after the specified time of inactivity have passed. Say if you set the Check period as 10 mins and Timeout period as 15 mins, then it will check the tabs every 10 mins and unload those tabs which are inactive for more than 15 mins.

You can visit the location below to install it in your Chrome browser.
