[Feature request] Store tab, like 'Pin Tab', in a temporary frozen state
Please add a GUI option that minimizes the tab size, like 'Pin Tab', but freezing all animations, scripts and network activity. Maybe call it "Store Tab" or "Hold Tab". Allow double clicking the minimized tab to restore it to full size / normal tab functionality.
Rationale: I keep a lot (5-10) of tabs open with the intent to use it later for a one-time action, such as purchasing an item in an online store after confirming other data or keeping an installation guide open to follow at a later time. Some of these tabs are real CPU hogs (looking at you, AliExpress) with constant animations running. I'd love to have a built-in way to temporarily disable a tab's system load and minimize tab bar visual clutter. A Chrome extension that does part of this (the freezing part) in a non-optimal way is "The Great Suspender" and has 1.6 million users according to the store: https://chrome.google.com/webstore/detail/the-great-suspender/klbibkeccnjlkjkiokjodocebajanakg?hl=en
