Google Chrome and Javascript Throttling

Postby mflorell » Wed Mar 15, 2017 9:35 am

For Google Chrome users, the newest version(57) starts throttling Javascript in background tabs, This can cause issues for some agents on some VICIdial configurations.

Here are instructions for how you can disable the throttling:

Users may opt out of the extra tab throttling right now by loading Chrome with the --disable-background-timer-throttling flag.

This is done in the following way on Windows machines:

- Right-click on the Chrome icon in the taskbar.
- Right-click on Chrome in the menu that opens, and select properties from it.
- Add --disable-background-timer-throttling to the end of the target field. Make sure there is a space between the path and the flag, e.g.
"C:\Users\Martin\AppData\Local\Google\Chrome SxS\Application\chrome.exe" --disable-background-timer-throttling

Google created the flag for "use cases like running test suites and other sanctioned heavy computations", but it is available to all users of the browser.
