Chrome frequently discards (i.e. 'unloads') tabs that haven't been active for a while. That makes sense if low on RAM, but I have ~70GB spare RAM.
I put this into the address bar: chrome://discards and can see all open tabs and their discard status (AKA 'Loading State') i.e. loaded vs unloaded).
I also tried searching the flags (chrome://flags/) for anything related to 'tabs', 'unloading', 'discarding' etc, but couldn't spot anything there either.
