Google launches memory and power saving features in Chrome

Google launched two features that it announced last December, and they work to make the browser less system-memory-intensive and more battery-efficient on desktops.

Although the Chrome browser has dominated the web browser market for years, with a share of 65.4% by last January on all platforms, especially on desktop devices, its users complain that it is the worst in consuming system memory and battery power.

According to Google, the two new features make the browser consume 30% less memory, with the aim of keeping tabs running smoothly and extending battery life when its power is low.

And now Memory Saver and Energy Saver modes are available in version 110 of Chrome for Windows, macOS, and ChromeOS.

With regard to the power saving mode, Google said that if the battery power is about to run out and there is no charger nearby and the battery power drops to 20%, the Energy Saver will save energy by reducing background activity and the visual effects of websites that contain animation. and video clips.

And Google stated that users will be able to control the customization of Chrome performance, as they can turn off the Memory Saver and Energy Saver modes if they wish, or select the most important websites that can be excluded from the Memory Saver feature.

The two new settings can be found under the three-dot menu in Chrome, then click on Settings, then click on Performance.

Users can download the latest version of the Chrome desktop browser from the official website.
