Google Chrome is now more economical with memory and power usage

The latest version of Chrome is available: version 110. This version introduces new Energy Saver and Memory Saver features, which Google released in December. announce. The features are coming to the Windows, Mac, and Linux versions of Chrome simultaneously. The approach is simple: save.

Unused tabs on the back burner

The browser does this by placing unused tabs on the back burner. Many Chrome users open dozens of tabs in their browser: Internet pages that can be tens to hundreds of megabytes in size. To keep the browser fast, Chrome has kept all these tabs ready for now. But this costs working memory, which can make other programs slower. By “snoozing” these tabs, Chrome should save memory.

Define exceptions yourself

By default, Chrome puts tabs that have not been used for a long time into this save mode. It’s still visible, but it should reload when you click on it.

In principle, Google Chrome should itself recognize which tabs and pages are used most often, so they are removed from save mode. Users can also indicate to themselves that they do not want to pause certain tabs.

Energy saving

In addition to memory, Chrome now promises to save energy. Even then things are put on the back burner. However, not the whole page, but for example visual effects, animations and video clips. Users can enable the feature manually, or set it to save automatically when their laptop is down 20 percent, or not connected.

Both functions are enabled automatically, and Google hasn’t revealed exactly how much energy users will save by using the power saving function.
