What did Chrome do this time?
On my home PC, I have an extension called The Great Suspender that suspends my inactive tabs to keep memory usage down. I have certain sites, like gmail or
cookie clicker, whitelisted so they don't go into suspend.
At work, I don't have that installed at all. But this week, I keep clicking into my gmail and it has to load the whole page again and I've missed like seven chat messages. How do I turn this off or whitelist sites?

Been seeing something similar recently when system memory is > 90% or so.
Looks like it might be this feature kicking in.
If that's it, then it doesn't look like there's a whitelist, but you can disable the whole thing under chrome://flags/. Setting name is Automatic tab discarding.
@AngleOSaxon Hrm. I don't mind tab discarding if it doesn't discard the tabs I need....
unless there's some way to get notificaitons for chat messages in gmail instead?
