Google’s official web browser, Google Chrome, has recently been under fire from rivals Microsoft regarding the battery performance.
Microsoft performed a test in June using four identical laptops, all running four different web browsers. Chrome, Firefox and Opera were all put along side the Microsoft Edge browser to see which consumed the battery quicker. Edge came out as the winner.
Chrome have begun the fight back with the release of Chrome 53 – it brings CPU and GPU power consumption enhancements for video playback, alongside “big” performance and power improvements overall.
