Home > Disable the tab throttling in Chrome


(Last Updated On: October 20, 2017)

Long story short, if you are not a certain tab, Chrome may put it to sleep to use less resources, which in principle is a nice concept, but this may interfere with the time it takes for you to get notifications. In order to avoid delays, we would recommend the following :


Open a new tab, and paste this on the address bar and hit enter :

Locate the line with “Throttle expensive background timers” and choose disabled :

Then, at the bottom of the screen, hit relaunch to restart your browser.
