Google Chrome optimizes software power consumption: add two hours of battery life after opening 37 Tags

Although you are the world's largest desktop browser, chrome also has many persistent problems, such as high CPU, high memory consumption, and power consumption when running. Google said in the latest technical documents that it optimized the power consumption in the case of multiple tags. A new lab feature has been added to chrome 86 to allow unnecessary JavaScript timers and trackers to be turned off when tags are hanging in the background to reduce energy consumption, such as JavaScript timers and trackers that check scroll position.

Tests at google labs found that the feature extended battery life by two hours with 37 tags open (1 active ,36 backstage).

However, in the case of active video tags, the endurance improvement is not particularly great. For example, the playing oil pipe only lasts for more than 30 minutes.


According to Google, these features can be used not only for desktop, but also for mobile devices. Previously, Microsoft and apple always liked to compare the battery life to highlight the advantages of their browser over chrome, which may be reversed in the future.
