Must have extension for Chrome for tab addicts

If you are a tabaholic like Linus, you must look into this extension.

During a phone call with a friend today, said friend with an older computer was telling me how he has over 100 tabs open at any time. I was wondering how someone with such a limited amount of RAM can handle that many tabs. Then he mentioned this extension. I have gotten better about closing tabs so I don't need it, but I figured some of you might like to know about this extension. I hope Linus sees this. He needs it.

If you give this extension a try, read this post from the developers first. https://github.com/deanoemcke/thegreatsuspender/issues/526

I've seen someone have so many tabs you can't even read the text anymore, it's just icons.  I thought that was bad

 

Then I saw them have so many tabs even the icons disappeared and they were legitimately hard to click on, never mind the fact you couldn't even tell what any of them were.  I thought that was the limit.

 

Then I saw them open so many that they actually became inaccessible.  Yes, new tabs were opening behind the minimize/close buttons and there was no way to get to it.  I only realized this by closing some to figure out what was going on.  I can't believe Chrome worked like this, you would think it would clue in that it needs to scroll at some point but I guess they figured no sane person would ever need that many.

 

Then I switched them to Firefox

If you can read this you're using the wrong theme.  You can change it at the bottom.

One nice thing about Edge is that it gives you a preview of what the tab is when you hover the mouse cursor over it. It's a nice feature that all browsers should have. It's a shame that Edge is hot garbage.

Yeah I doubt anyone has used Edge hardcore enough for that feature to matter xD  Others should steal it
