The TheWindowsClub, revealed that Chrome is going to become incredibly more efficient, based on information retrieved from internal company sources. New mode Google Chrome seems to have the effect of increasing its lifespan battery into a laptop and smartphone.

In accordance with TheWindowsClub, this can be achieved by limiting the use of unnecessary work javascript on the tabs running in the background.
