One of the major problems facing its users Google Chrome, is high consumption battery, especially those who use Windows 10. The most popular browser in the world also uses an extremely large amount of RAM, which has generated a lot of funny content reporting.
However Microsoft has suggested some new modifications that could help Google Chrome in terms of battery consumption. Now that the company has its own browser based on Chromium, was an active partner in Chromium Gerrit.
This is a helpful gesture from Microsoft, which has previously hosted contests for Google Chrome and other browsers to show lower battery life compared to Edge.
How to reduce battery consumption?
Last August, Microsoft engineer Shawn Pickett explained that the increased battery consumption was due to unnecessary cache data storage that occurs when a video is transmitted via Internet.
As a result, the hard disk drive is busy due to this process based on power consumption, which in turn affects the battery life of the device. One very necessary change to overcome this issue is to suspend the provisional process storage media.
Now, Chromium Gerrit includes details on avoiding unnecessary cache storage and reducing Chrome battery problems.
Microsoft has added a check to see if a device is running on a battery or is plugged into an AC outlet. The goal is to make sure that the new setting does not affect the browser's operation when it is powered, as it is intended to increase battery life.
While early tests have shown improvements in battery life, whether or not this change has a noticeable performance difference for the user has not been fully ascertained.
At this time, Google Chrome allows you to manually disable caching for playback multimedia.
We still don't know when the new battery-saving feature will be completed and will be released in the fixed version of Google Chrome for Windows 10 and other platforms, though many expect it to happen soon.
