Speed Up Google Chrome With This Tab-Reducing Extension

    I have somewhere around 70 tabs open on my computer right now, give or take a few. I treat Chrome tabs like temporary bookmarks. For instance, a few of my open tabs are for stories I want to read later, and a few others are for SF Beer Week events I’m currently in the midst of planning for. It’s not the most efficient way to work, but it’s the way I’ve chosen. Unfortunately, it’s also a way that sucks a ton of power.

    Manage Lots of Browser Tabs With This Chrome Extension

    My tab habit has become a problem on my MacBook on more than one occasion, simply because leaving all of those tabs open, especially using Google Chrome, sucks up a ton of computer memory.

    One Tab is a Chrome extension that allows you to in essence keep all those tabs open without actually keeping all those tabs open.

    When you use it, it will convert all of your open tabs into a list. When you need to get to them again, you can then restore the individual tab you need, or all your tabs at once. The Extension’s creators say that using it can save up to 95% of your computer’s memory. That, of course, depends on how many tabs you’re leaving open regularly now, but regardless there should be some memory savings.

    That list of tabs can also be converted into a webpage if you’d like so you can share it with friends. That means that the dozen or so beer events I have open now can be sent to friends by just creating a webpage of links if I want. Or I could just send that research to myself and close all those tabs down permanently.

    While the sharable feature is cool, the real bonus is in the memory savings. If you’re leaving as many as I am open on a regular basis, it could potentially mean the difference between having a functional computer and looking at the spinning wheel of death on the regular.
