Chrome has been at the brunt of many power-hungry jokes but it seems that Google is actually addressing these issues by both updating the browser, as well as trying to rectify much of the energy-zapping problems.
While this seems like a no brainer for Google to implement this change as soon as possible, there are rumours that this feature won’t be ready in time for the next Google Chrome update. A little unfortunate, due to battery consumption being the main turn off for most users, but hopefully it’s worth the wait.
Is the power consumption of Chrome affecting your experience? It’s certainly a widely reported issue and one we hope this update will solve so we’ll keep our eyes peeled on any more updates regarding this improvement and let all of you know when it drops!
