OneTab can help us to manage tabs which can also reduce memory usage.

Toby for Chrome from @lyavale95

https://chrome.google.com/webstore/detail/toby-for-chrome/hddnkoipeenegfoeaoibdmnaalmgkpip

This extension helps to manage tabs. However, it has one issue to me since this extension prevents using Daily 2.0 lol

Thank you very much for featuring Daily here! :)

 
 

Thank you for such an amazing tool!

 
 

One of my favorites is Caret. A sublime text like clone in a chrome extension? Why yes. Useful in lightweight situations like a travel Chromebook.

 

Looks good. Thank you for sharing the info!

 

Some good ones here I’ve never heard of! Amazing thanks!

 

Thank you for these extensions!

I would like to suggest "30 Seconds of Knowledge" aswell. :)

chrome.google.com/webstore/detail/...

 

@marcoribeiroweb thank you for sharing the info.
I will add 30 Seconds of Knowledge to the article.

 

Great Suspender is a good one. Especially with Chrome being so RAM hungry. I donated some $ also.

 

Dunno that I've seen Chrome lose its mind quite the way trying to use gMail on Firefox does. Nothing like trying to open a new tab and the browser saying "nope" – or even just switch to an existing tab – when you've made the mistake of leaving a gMail tab or two sit open for an hour or so.

 

Also the Toby extension is kinda cool, you can save your access and organize it easily, in dashboard.
For the learning stuff is pretty useful :)

 

Toby looks good. I will add Toby to the article!
Thanks, @lyavale95
