Chrome is probably the most used web browser on all platforms but it’s not exactly because it is the perfect browser. Although it has considerably improved over the years especially in memory management, it’s still notorious for being a huge drain on battery life, something that the pre-Chromium Microsft Edge tried to capitalize on. That may soon be a thing of the past if the latest update makes it to the stable version of Chrome, saving users 30 minutes to even 2 hours of battery life even with dozens of tabs open.
If the changes are implemented, it would be a significant improvement over Chrome’s performance across all platforms. However, Google will give enterprise system administrators the ability to disable that feature for at least a year after the feature ships. This would allow them to test the feature and make sure nothing breaks or make the necessary changes to become compatible with the new policy.
