How to Prevent Chrome from Reloading Pages while Switching Tabs? – [Solved]

Sometimes when we open a lot of tabs in our Chrome browser then it sometimes reloads every page which we opened sometime before the currently used tab, so we need to wait in order to reload it. Just think about the situation in which you are working on some form filling website and apparently you need to open other tabs but when you again open that previous tab then it reloads your page causing a loss of work and time. But no need to worry about it as we have figured out a solution for it. 
This is not a serious issue because opening lots of tabs in chrome consumes memory and uses lots of resources. So, in order to maintain speed, chrome halts every other tab in order to save memory.
