How to Reduce Shift's Memory Usage

Some users have experienced heavy memory consumption depending on the number of accounts and apps they use in Shift. To keep the RAM usage of Shift low and improve overall performance we created Hibernation Mode. 

 

Hibernation Mode automatically snoozes your unused accounts to recover lost processing power from running multiple tabs at once. Your snoozed tabs are still accessible and may take a few seconds to load as they come out of their Hibernation state.
