About Dean Oemcke

The Great Suspender has been helping chrome users keep their memory usage under control since 2012. It's also a personal project created, owned and maintained by me in my spare time.

The project is open source on Github and I would like to keep it in active development while there is still a need and demand for it. However, as is common with open source projects, finding the time to devote proper attention to it is hard. Especially when juggling a full-time job and a family of four (2 kids, not 4!).

Patreon provides a unique opportunity for me to (hopefully) generate a small revenue stream to help justify taking the occasional work sabbatical to push out a new release of the extension. I am hoping to keep the extension actively updated and bug free, and very importantly, advertising and tracking free. With your help!

Anyone willing to donate $1 or more per month will receive an email revealing a secret trick that removes the donation popup from within the extension (hot tip: it's not very hi-tech). I will also keep you in the loop via email with news about upcoming releases.

Many thanks to all contributors, be it financially through Patreon or via code contributions on Github. Your help keeps The Great Suspender running and chrome from crashing.
