Sleepy tabs in MS Edge

If you are like me and have always a huge amount of tabs open in your active browser(s), then you might like the introduction of sleepy tabs in Microsoft Edge (the new one based on Chromium)!

It was introduced a few weeks ago, but at the time I only managed to take a screenshot of it (the introduction) back then...

Introducing sleepy tabs

The idea is that all browsers that have been inactive for an configured amount of time, will "go to sleep". The advantage is that they will stop using resources so that these resources can be used in other parts of your system. I typically have 4-5 edge profiles open and all of them are loaded with tabs (yes I know, I'm a terrible housekeeper on that point), so this will help me a lot!

I hope it helps you too!
