Google Chrome: The Browser will become more Battery Conserving with the upcoming feature update

It’s possible that Google Chrome will soon become less of a performance hog, especially if you frequently have a lot of tabs open. The speed of outdated low-end PCs may even improve thanks to a recently uncovered feature in the development build that extends the battery life of mobile devices.

The most widely used web browser today is Google Chrome, although it has a reputation for using up a lot of system resources. That could change in the near future as the firm is testing a new feature that will increase battery life for Chrome users who prefer to have a lot of tabs open across all devices.

Currently, Google Chrome effectively puts inactive tabs to sleep by only allowing websites to perform JavaScript code once every minute after you haven’t interacted with them for more than five minutes.

A new flag labelled “Quick intense timer throttling of loaded background pages” was discovered in Chrome OS 105 regarding Chromebooks (Dev channel). The default five-minute grace period is reduced by this feature to just ten seconds, which should result in a 10% improvement in CPU performance.

The enhancement won’t result in a 10% increase in battery life because the CPU only accounts for a small portion of a system’s overall power usage. However, depending on how many tabs you have open and how poorly constructed the websites you visit, it might still make a difference.

Users of Chrome on all operating systems, including Windows, Chrome OS, Linux, macOS, and Android, should be able to access the feature in a few months. Microsoft Edge and Opera are two other Chromium-based browsers that might decide to make the move as well, especially since Edge already has an efficiency mode that performs similarly.
