Chrome is known for being a battery hog on laptop computers, but Google claims that with its latest update, the browser will now be more performance-friendly on MacBooks. This should make using Chrome more bearable on battery-powered devices and hopefully encourage more users to install the software.
Apple’s latest MacBook Pro with the new M2 chipset was found to last for 18 hours when watching YouTube videos or browsing the web on macOS Ventura. This is a significant increase from the 17 hours that users were able to achieve with the older MFi-powered MacBook Pro. As Google did not measure how much of a difference upgrading to the new M2 chipset would make on older models, we cannot say for sure if it is worth upgrading to this newer model if you own an older Macbook.
Some Google users are reporting that the company’s latest update, which began last week, has improved their browser’s battery life by as much as 30%. Memory saver mode has also been reported to work more effectively in conserving data.
These changes may help Chrome run more smoothly and speed up tasks, giving users a better browsing experience.
Microsoft Edge has been tuned to take up fewer system resources for better energy management. It is hoped that this will improve battery life on devices running the browser, and make surfing the web more affordable for users.
The latest version of Google Chrome, released in April 2017, offers several new features and improvements including support for the new Web Platform Benchmark 2 project. With this release, Google aims to make Chrome faster and more efficient by benchmarking top websites across industries. By using benchmark data from these top sites, Chrome can adjust its performance automatically to make your browsing experience as smooth as possible. If you’re looking for a browser that’s reliable and powerful but also lightning fast, then you may want to consider downloading the latest version ofGoogle Chrome.
