For unknown reasons, Chrome developer team is being more and more obsessed with throttling.
Throttling is occuring after a given time lapse when Chrome window is hidden or iconized, preventing code from running more than once per minute.
You will then get a log message : 'For an optimal beheavior, please leave this Chrome window visible. (timer took 59s)' or so.
Workarounds described below may not work in near futur since they are changing behavior without notice.
Flags might disappear, command line flags might end having silently no effect.
Most of the time an opened web browser tab with a partially visible PowerSniper tab should be enough.
But beware of RDP closed session or desktop locked session. Also mind that beheavior is different on Windows 10, Windows 11 and MacOs.
