Google chrome is a very famous and mostly used web browser but as you know it is power and ram hungry. Microsoft’s own test shows how bad it is for your battery.
How Bad Chrome Is For Your Laptop’s Battery?
Microsoft’s new browser aka Microsoft’s edge that comes packed with windows 10 is doing well compared to the internet explorer but is it even better than Google Chrome. To find out this Microsoft had a couple of test’s and the results were insane. Google chrome was consuming 70% more power than Edge.
Google chrome is a good browser when it comes to performance but when it comes to Ram and Battery stuff it is a threat to your laptop.
Of all the Browsers tested (Chrome, Firefox and Opera) by Microsoft the Microsoft Edge performed the best and consumed only 465 mW, Firefox scored nearly equal to Edge with 493 mW but Chrome consumed about 719 mW which is almost double the Edge’s score.
Microsoft Edge is becoming more and more popular with time due to the user experience it provides resembling chrome that internet explorer wasn’t able to provide unfortunately. Even though Google Chrome uses a hell of battery but its performance is also crazy. Microsoft did tell people about the battery life but the performance ratio isn’t defined anywhere.
As Microsoft said
You can simply browse longer with Microsoft Edge than with Chrome, Firefox, or Opera on Windows 10 devices.
But you will have to sacrifice your extensions and stuff. If you are looking to try out Microsoft Edge then you should keep in mind that it isn’t available for Andriod or IOS but it will still give you a good time. Microsoft did mention that it is going to improve more to increase battery live but it is sure that it will reduce some performance which Microsoft hasn’t mentioned but let’s see with time and hope for the best.
