More About OnLoad Unload Tabs
As soon as you click on an unloaded tab, it will load the webpage as normal.
Firefox browser does this by default, and now, with this extension, you can have this feature in Chrome too.
Why did I make this?
I didn't like that I would open Chrome and all my tabs would start loading. I don't need all of them to load, I might not even click on most of them. I liked that in Firefox, I didn't need to worry about how many tabs I had open, since I knew when I restarted the browser, none of those tabs would load until I clicked on them (but the tabs were still there, ready to be clicked if I wanted them).
After some research, I found that Chrome does have this feature, but it's only available to extensions. So, I created this extension for myself, so I can once again use Chrome with tonnes of tabs open, and not worry about wasting my computer's resources on those tabs.
Besides unloading all tabs when you open Chrome...
1) Added a right click menu option: you can click this option and it will unload all your inactive tabs immediately.
That's it. This is a very lightweight extension. Enjoy :)
This extension only unloads tabs:
a) when you open Chrome, or
b) when you click the menu item.
It doesn't unload tabs at any other time.
