Google Chrome is a popular and yes so familiar browser despite a very big issue which is battery consumption. Although the state has been considerably improved over time, it still bothers in many ways. Google may be looking into ways to cut down on certain things or introduce some criteria that could prove helpful in retaining the battery life of a system. One such effort has come into notice, thanks to sleuths over at TheWindowsClub (TWC).
Reportedly, this new feature is coming to Google Chrome for Windows, Mac, Linux, Android, and ChromeOS.
In one more test, instead of a blank tab in the foreground, Google played a YouTube video in fullscreen mode. Before the start of the second test, Google also disabled ‘Energy Save’ settings to prevent the display from going idle. Furthermore, Google also disabled the ‘Automatically adjust brightness’ option in Display settings. This test further increased battery life by almost 36 minutes (13 percent). In this case, Google wanted to test if reducing the background activities proves helpful in extending the battery life even when there is a foreground activity.
Now, Google developers will implement this feature using a couple of ways to finally reduce battery consumption.
