Picks
Ian
The Great Suspender
– Extension for Chrome
– Unload, park, suspend tabs to reduce memory footprint of chrome.
Tabs can auto-suspend after a configurable period of time or be suspended manually. Tabs can be whitelisted to avoid automatic suspension. Suspended tabs are retained after closing and reopening browser, preventing many tabs from all reloading after a restart
– Saves memory and more importantly battery on laptops

Chris
Pocket Casts
– Great podcast app for Android and iOS
– Auto downloads, syncs between clients and a fantastic front end
