Google Chrome finally gets Memory Saver, Energy Saver features

21 February 2023 2

Google Chrome is the most widely used web browser worldwide but it also has a bad reputation for being resource-hungry. This not only affects your browsing experience but also the battery life of your notebook. To overcome this, Google announced Memory Saver and Energy Saver tools for Chrome on Mac, Windows, Linux, and Chromebooks last December. The good thing is the wait is over and the rollout has finally begun.

Memory Saver is all about saving the memory consumption of your machine. The tool essentially snoozes inactive tabs until you start using them actively. This allows Chrome to free up memory and resources for other important tasks. It should be noted that this does not kill inactive tabs. All those tabs will continue to be visible in the address bar and you only need to click on them to make them active. It will show you the amount of memory freed up while a particular tab was inactive.


As for Energy Saver, the tool is meant to help conserve battery power by limiting background activity and visual effects. It limits animations and smooth scrolling and even reduces video frame rates. Google says users may notice some differences in gaming and video performance when this tool is active. Apart from simple on or off, users can choose to turn it on only when the battery is lower than 20% or when the laptop is unplugged.


Google says both these tools will be enabled by default for all users on Chrome 110 or higher. The feature rollout has begun which means you should have it if you are running the latest version. If the tools are still unavailable due to some reason, you can enable them using chrome://flags/#battery-saver-mode-available and chrome://flags/#high-efficiency-mode-available flags.

Hello everyone my name is kingsley matthew from the united state of
america north carolina i'm giving a testimony on how I joined the
illuminati brotherhood, I was trying to join this organization for so
many years now, I was scammed by fake agent in south Africa and ghana,
I was down i could not feed my self and my family anymore and I tried
to make money by all means but all in vain, I was afraid to contact
any illuminati agent because they have eat my money, one day I came
across a post of someone giving a testimony thanking a man called
NATHANIEL NELLY for helping him to join the illuminati brotherhood,
then I looked at the man's email and the phone number that was written
there, I was afraid to contact him because i was scammed a lot of
times by scammers who ate my 500,000 and went away with the money then
I was very confused so I decided to contact the person that was given
the testimony and i called him and I communicated with him on phone
calls before he started telling me his own story about when he wanted
to join he told me everything to do, then I made up my mind and called
the agent called NATHANIEL NELLY and he told me everything to do and I
was initiated, surprisingly I was given my benefit of being a new
member ,but if intrested in joining kindly message NATHANIEL NELLY
via email (illuminatinationwide2@gmail.com) or whatsapp +1 (619) 494-0269
