How Battery Life Has Been in the Latest Version of Google
The garbage collection and memory compression of recently created iframes (an element that loads another HTML element inside of a webpage) have been fine-tuned by Google, which has resulted in a reduction in energy consumption while maintaining the same level of long-term memory utilization.
Earlier this month, Google also introduced a new Energy Saver mode for Chrome. This mode helps to extend the battery life of devices by reducing the amount of unnecessary background activity that occurs on websites. These activities include visual effects such as smooth scrolling that occur during animations or videos. When compared to the same MacBook Pro 13, the search giant asserts that enabling this mode can provide users with an additional half an hour of browsing time (M2, 2022). When you’re trying to finish up important tasks on your laptop before the battery dies, every second counts, even though it’s not much.
