One of the biggest complaints that Chrome users have on Windows 10 is associated with resource consumption. These end up having a big impact and decrease the equipment’s life and battery life.
This is not a new situation and Google has long wanted to resolve it. Now, and with a novelty, the research giant may have found a way to reduce battery consumption in Chrome. It is a simple process that will have little impact on users, with big gains.
Google wants battery savings on computers
Despite all the information and teasing that has been happening about Chrome’s energy consumption, Google doesn’t seem to be able to get around this problem. Edge performs much better in this area and this is a handicap compared to what Google offers in your browser.
A novelty may arrive soon and that will possibly change this scenario. The latest test version of Chrome brings a novelty that could allow this browser to save up to 28% of the battery in normal use.
Of course, this measure will not be applied randomly on tabs that are running in the background. Thus, it will take effect only after 5 minutes, thus entering a state of savings for that separator.
Consumption will drop dramatically
This novelty is already being tested on Chrome 86 and will soon be transposed to production versions. There is still a long way to go before everyone has access to this improvement, but the path and plans are outlined to make battery saving a reality.
