Although Google Chrome is considered one of the best browsers for Android devices and classic computers, it has often been criticized for its high consumption of electronic resources. In December, it was reported that memory and power saving modes were coming, and now the new features are being rolled out across the board in Chrome 110 for desktops and laptops.
Back in December, it was reported that the new Memory Saver feature optimizes memory usage by giving priority to open tabs when used. Inactive ones are sent to sleep. In order to update the information in an inactive tab, just go to it in the browser.
The Energy Saver feature is similar in many ways, but aims to reduce Chrome’s power consumption on laptops and Chromebooks. You can set the mode so that it will be activated as soon as the battery level drops below 20%. When the mode is active, the user will see a leaf icon to the right of the address bar. This mode disables resource-intensive visual effects. In particular, according to Google, the battery charge is saved by disabling “smooth” scrolling and animations on sites, as well as reducing the frame rate.
Starting with the stable version of Chrome 110 on Chromebook, Windows, and Mac, the new features are enabled by default, according to Android Police. Of course, you can always limit their work, as well as make additional settings – set energy savings immediately after the laptop is unplugged or, in memory saving mode, add some sites to the “white list” of resources that are always active. You can specify usage options in your browser settings by selecting the “performance” tab. It is noteworthy that the power saving mode is not shown in the desktop version.
If the necessary tabs are missing in the settings, go to the following addresses in the address bar to debug the software:
Earlier it was reported that Google Chrome in the foreseeable future will block the loading of pages via the insecure HTTP protocol.
