Google is currently testing a new feature to be implemented on the browser Chrome that will allow free up the RAM memory optimizing the functioning of the computer. The feature was noticed in Google Chrome Canary, the Alpha version of the popular browser aimed at web developers.

A particular Alpha version because it is open to everyone and designed so that users can contribute to the development of Chrome. Currently the feature is not available to everyone, but there is a trick to call it up and preview it. It is not yet clear if this new feature will debut on the next version of Chrome, it is one advanced function dedicated mainly to lovers of multitasking and which could appear a bit difficult for many users because it is complex to manage.

The more tabs open, the greater the impact on system resources, resulting in slow down your computer work due to the occupation of the RAM memory. There new "Tab Freeze" function It allows block tabs in the background thus avoiding to use RAM memory empty.

"Tab Freeze": how it works

The new function can now only be called via the address bar. By typing chrome: // flags / # proactive-tab-freeze you can access the new setting that allows you to "freeze" the tabs that have been open in the background for more than five minutes. Not only that, to the delight of multitasking lovers, it is possible also select the option “Enabled Freeze - Unfreeze 10 seconds every 15 minutes” to set the awakening of the open Chrome tabs in the background every 15 minutes and for a maximum of 10 seconds. This option is useful for continuing to keep tabs active if you need to receive notifications (for example from your e-mail address), or to facilitate any synchronization activities. Finally, after activating the “Tab Feature” function, always typing chrome: // discards in the address bar is possible manage "frozen" cards.

For the moment the new feature is only available in the Alpha version of Google Chrome and it will take a long trial period before seeing it on the official version of the browser.
