We all are well aware of the fact that Google Chrome is considered to be the most used and most popular internet browser. While people love using it for searching or surfing through the internet. It is still termed as one of the most battery-consuming browsers available. However, it seems like this issue is going to be solved soon. According to the latest reports, Google Chrome update might extend the laptop battery life by up to 2 hours.
Chrome Update extends Battery life by up to 2 Hours
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.
The Google Chrome update will indeed be an effective one as the Chrome browser is quite a battery-consuming one. The battery life to be extended by 28% to two hours is expected to apply to Google Chrome running on Windows, Mac, Chrome OS, and Android. However, it’s still not confirmed when the feature will be rolled out to users.
