Quicker Tab hibernation

  • As it is now, tab hibernation kick's in after 40 seconds tab being inactive (some pages never hibernate, like FB or this very forum).
    I think it's too long, so real benefits of hibernation (mem. footprint couple of hundreds kilobytes) are not so obvious.
    Is there any reason why tabs wouldn't hibernate after, let's say 5-10 seconds?
    waking up is difficult or....some other reason?
    user defined setting would be nice also...

  • DeviantArt never hibernates, and images there are a huge memory hog. I'd like to have options for hibernation, like time or even force pages which have META or javascript autorefresh.

  • Ok, I take that back 🙂 Deviantart tabs are suspended as expected! But all the tabs are resumed when I hover over the tabs with tab preview enabled.
