An idea: Support of stopping/sleeping javascript in inactive tabs in browser

I think this stopping or sleeping of the javascript or any other script (like flash) in inactive browser tab or window would have lot of benefits:

– It would save CPU load which would have additional benefits:

– saving batteries on notebooks

– saving the money for electricity bills

– (for people with green brains it could perhaps save the World)

The disadvantage is that some scripts may have a problem with this behaviour. But browser based scripts work fine on smart phones which stop any running application after some idle time, so maybe it is not a huge problem.

Anybody wants to create plugin for it? 😉
