"The Great Discarder" is a clone of my other open source chrome extension "The Great Suspender". It was built to take advantage of Google's new 'tab discarding' functionality which is essentially a native implementation of tab suspension. This implementation is more robust and performant, both in the resources consumed by the extension, and the memory savings of the tab suspension. It is also compatible with chrome tab history syncing. If you have suggestions or problems using the extension, please submit a bug or a feature request.
