chrome-killer (from kill-tabs)

Kill all Chrome/Chromium tabs or entires to improve performance, decrease battery usage, and save memory

Works on macOS, Linux, Windows.

When you run kill-chrome the Chrome tab processes are killed, which means they will no longer take up system resources, but they will still be in your Chrome window, just as crashed. When you want one back you just reload the tab.

CLI

$ npm install --global chrome-killer
$ chrome-killer --help

    $ chrome-killer

  Options
    --no-chromium            Don't kill tabs in Chromium
    --no-chrome              Don't kill tabs in Chrome
    --including-main-process Kill main browser process
    --instance-path          Specify path of Chrome/Chromium instance to kill

API

$ npm install --save chrome-killer
const chromeKiller = require('chrome-killer');
 
chromeKiller().then(() => {
    console.log('Killed tabs');
});

Tip

You can use the Reload All Tabs Chrome extension to easily reload all the tabs.
