Google Chrome has introduced a new solution for people worried about their laptop and smartphone’s battery life. In a Forbes report, The Windows Club received internet Google documents of the newest projects that the widely-used search engine is planning to do at a later time.
Report shows that the website will ‘dramatically’ set a more power-efficient technology behind the use of Google Chrome. What does this mean?
Google Chrome Update
About 10% of the world’s electricity revolves around using the Internet. Google Chrome is one of the most-used websites. It accounts for more than half of the web traffic on all servers. But one of the most irritating problems that it has, focuses on its battery-saving capacity.
This will result in a 28% boost to battery life compared to the older versions of the search engine.
Google somehow confirmed this action in a Wall Street Journal article. According to the Director of Chrome browser engineering Max Christoff, the action of lessening the battery consumption when using Chrome has been one of their goals for the past years.
“I view performance on Chrome as a journey, not a destination,” said him. “This is an ongoing investment in improvements to speed, performance, and battery life.”
Christoff also said that there might be changes that will be affecting the Chrome ads that will show on the search engine. This means that there will be a lesser amount of online ads– which means more battery to the consumer.
How did they come up with that?
So, how did Google actually came up with that solution?
- Open Chrome Canary
- Select chrome://flags
- Set the flag to Enable immediately when a tab is hidden using the drop-down menu
- Relaunch Chrome.
Is it the end of Google Chrome?
The start of 2020 was not that great for Google Chrome. Reuters reported that spyware has been luring people in the search engine to steal their personal info.
Google said that they already deleted 70 malicious malware that could be affecting the users’ profiles.
“When we are alerted of extensions in the Web Store that violate our policies, we take action and use those incidents as training material to improve our automated and manual analyses,” Google spokesman Scott Westover told Reuters.
Maybe now they’ve done a better job. By giving us more battery.
