New Chrome Release Lets You Browse for Longer on a Laptop

Most of us are aware that Google Chrome is a bit of a battery sapper on Windows & macOS.

Google, aware that it needed to do better, duly got to work fixing longstanding bugs, removing excessive feature bloat, and generally giving the browser a nip and a tuck.

The work has been more than skin deep, as the above video, shared by Google, clearly shows.

Google Chrome v53 is able to last 2 hours and 12 minutes longer than the same device running the same non-stop Vimeo video stream in Chrome v46.

In all, with Chrome open and streaming video, the device lasted a healthy 10 hours and 39 minutes — pretty much enough time to digest an entire season of Doctor Who!

Naturally Google will have chosen its test carefully. Vimeo with HTML5 video playback is likely much kinder on a laptop battery than Google Chrome with a Flash streaming site.

But even anecdotally it’s positive proof that Google is intent on addressing one of the chief complaints users have about Chrome.

      1 yr have passed since I quit my last job and it was a best decision i made in my life… I started freelancing at home, for a company I discovered online, several hours daily, and I make much more than i did on my office work… Pay-check i got for last month was for 9k dollars… Superb thing about this is the more time i got for my loved ones… SECURE54.COM

    I’ve noticed some of the changes in my Chromebook. The LED keyboard backlighting doesn’t come on after cold boot till I press a key. Display brightness lowers more often and sooner after inactivity. I sometimes see huge differences in display brightness after plugging in the AC adaptor. This last “improvement” I don’t like.

    • I still wish it would remember keyboard backlight settings between boots. I usually keep my keyboard backlight off, and having to cycle it down every time I boot up is a bit annoying.

        I’ve always thought the same thing. There must be a good technical reason they don’t save that setting is all I can think of. Same for the screen brightness.
