Google is making a move to address the pre-existing issues with Mac devices.
Google Chrome has announced that they will improve “tab throttling” by giving more attention to the active tabs and limiting resource drain from tabs open in the background. This is said to have a “dramatic impact on battery and performance.” Google has reportedly been performing early tests on Mac laptops for this matter.
“This is an ongoing investment in improvements to speed, performance and battery life,” said Max Christoff, director of Chrome browser engineering. Consumers have previously criticized chrome for battery draining, poor use of RAM, and privacy concerns.
Just last May, Google set out plans to enhance its Chrome battery toll by blocking resource-heavy ads. Chrome will also have to limit their resources that an ad can use before the user interacts with it. Besides this, Chrome will soon be upgraded with the new optimization that will allow the crucial parts of the software to run even faster.
Google is now experimenting with the changes, intending to release the optimizations and improvements to Chrome in a firm release by the end of August.
