Google Chrome is now exploring a feature that will save up to two hours of battery life when multiple tabs are open at once.
According to tests carried by Google (results obtained by TheWindowsClub), doing so extends battery by almost two hours when 36 background pages are open and active tab is blank. But since having the active tab blank does not accurately reflect a normal usage scenario, Google also tested by running YouTube on the active tab and disabling screen dimming or energy-saving mode.
With the same 36 background pages open, this test extended the battery life by about half an hour or 13 per cent. While it is not as exciting as the results of the previous test, it is an improvement.
While this might not make much of a difference in laptops with great battery life, the new feature will certainly help the laptops that do not excel in the battery department.
The feature will be supported on Google Chrome for Windows, Mac, Linux, Android and Chrome OS.
