Chrome Update extends Battery life by up to 2 Hours

A report by The WindowsClub says that an “experimental feature” in Chrome 86 has been spotted. By the feature in the update, it is expected that the battery life of laptops might extend by 2 hours. According to the report, Google is looking into the objective of limiting ‘JavaScript timer wake ups’ to 1 wake up per minute in the background. WindowsClub says that Google experimented with a prototype that does exactly the same as mentioned above.

After the experiment, 36 random tabs were opened in the background with the foreground tab being “about: blank”. The results of the experiment were later analyzed. It was concluded that the move was able to extend the battery life of the laptop by up to 2 hours.

Another experiment was performed for the purpose to check the extension of battery life on laptops. But this time, YouTube running a video in full-screen mode was kept in the foreground instead of about: blank. The experiment concluded that the battery life of the laptop was extended by almost 36 minutes.
