NO ONE likes battery but some of our most popular apps are battery drainers.
It’s not surprising the amount of data runs through some, and Google Chrome is no exception.
The most popular web browser out there is for a reason, because it works well.
One thing we’ve all been guilty of is keeping loads of tabs open – and you won’t believe how much power it takes.
You can download tools like the tab suspension extension for free.
These tabs prevent inactive tabs from continuing to work in the background, which can drain battery power.
But the savings are so modest that you may not notice a difference at all.
Instead, there is a very simple rule that we all seem to forget these days, according to an expert from ZDNet.
And that basically ensures you close your entire web browser when not in use.
While simple, this can be difficult to prove to those who feel guilty about leaving endless tabs open.
What can be very obvious but easily overlooked is that Chrome can only explode with your power if it is turned on.
So the sooner you stop using it when it’s not needed, the more battery life you’ll save.
If you have loads of open pages that you need to revisit later, try bookmarking the old-fashioned way.
You can then access them again later without running out of juice.
