Home > Disable the tab throttling in Chrome

You may have noticed that the version 57 of Google Chrome brought some changes with it. Long story short, if you are not a certain tab, Chrome may put it to sleep to use fewer 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 into the address bar and hit enter :
Locate the line with “Throttle expensive background timers” and choose disabled (1). Then, at the bottom of the screen, hit relaunch to restart your browser (2).
Note: On newer versions of Chrome this setting will be called Enable Resource Load Throttling as shown below (3)
