Every open tab uses some amount of memory and processing power, which quickly adds up to cause the computer to slow down. Tablerone remedies this problem by automatically saving the URL of inactive tabs, but discarding their content (after 60 minutes by default).

For a smoother user experience, it exempts tabs:

  • currently in focus (for conference calls or passive use)
  • playing audio or video content (for background activity)
  • pinned tabs (for frequent use and as a manual exempt marker)
