Great Suspender Chrome extension yanked for malware infection — what to do

Google has removed a popular Chrome desktop-browser extension called The Great Suspender from the Chrome Web Store, following numerous complaints that the open-source extension’s new maintainer had injected it with malware.

The Great Suspender was used by Chrome users to “suspend” open tabs, freeing up their memory. It was particularly useful for computers with 8GB of RAM or less. Often, these users would hit a wall when having more than a dozen or so tabs open. (Chrome is a notorious memory hog.)
