@codl the only thing I can think of is that browser tabs that aren't playing any audio and aren't the foreground tab and aren't using websockets or webrtc are eligible for unloading


@ben hmm. well, even if you close the chat, twitch constantly has a websocket open and pinging

also i haven't seen it happen on firefox
