If your Google Chrome is running slow or gets bogged down under the burden of too many open tabs, here is how to free up 95% memory to speed up the web browser. Google Chrome is the world’s number one internet browser in terms of active users. Commanding over 60 percent web browser market, which is leaps ahead of the nearest rival Internet Explorer’s share of 11 percent.
Chrome’s integration with other Google services, fast speed, quick page-load time, a variety of add-ons, and plugins form a complete package anyone could ask for in an online browsing tool.
Although Chrome is already ahead of alternatives when it comes to facilitating browsing activities, run processes smoothly and enable faster file downloads from various digital sources. But all of this can be improved even more.
If you’re the one who likes to use Chrome with lots of tabs opened for quickly navigating web pages, it can take a toll on browser’s memory which has to keep loading caches, refresh in real-time, and to ensure that your experience doesn’t get affected by lags. Despite being pretty efficient in handling most of the workload thrown at it, Google’s browser has a limit above which it starts choking up. Many of us have been in this situation where Chrome either slows down the device or experiences intermittent freezes if too many open tabs run at the same time. This can be remedied using a free extension for Chrome called OneTab.
Here is how it works according to its official description:
Whenever you find yourself with too many tabs, click the OneTab icon to convert all of your tabs into a list. When you need to access the tabs again, you can either restore them individually or all at once.
When your tabs are in the OneTab list, you will save up to 95% of memory because you will have reduced the number of tabs open in Google Chrome.
The main idea of OneTab is this: when a user has multiple tabs opened in Chrome with OneTab extension enabled on it, clicking the OneTab button will close all open tabs and collapse them in one tab in the form of a list which contains links to all those websites previously running in tabs. From the new single tab, you can click a particular link to open in a new tab and resume where you left. Other services such as restore all, delete all or favorite all links for quick access later make OneTab a really useful extension.
