Google is testing a new feature that could allow its Chrome browser to consume less battery. For this, the developers would limit the performance of the pages in the background.
Google is continually working to improve its Chrome web browser. One of its biggest missions is to optimize the performance requested by the browser in order to increase the autonomy of the computers and smartphones on which it is used. For several years, one of the big struggles has been the management of tabs in the background, which are quite energy-intensive. A new tweak has been spotted in one of the latest Chrome updates that would reduce battery usage.
This is About Chromebooks who noticed a change in the Chrome OS 105 Chromebook operating system update.
