We all know that internet surfing drains battery very fast.

Well, now Google made a major step to save your battery for the longer time than usual. The company was aware of this problem for long time and finally it provided the solution to this issue.

One of Google’s software developers, Peter Kasting recently announced a few improvements that have been made to the Chrome browser on Mac computers. He said that by reducing the priority of rendering the tabs on the background they managed to decrease the number of wakeups when the device is idle thus, saving the battery of the device.

Google used Safari to improve its browser. Engineers from Google compared the total number of wakeups in both browsers and found out that Safari has only 312 wakeups in 30 seconds when the Amazon page is opened whereas Chrome had 768 wakeups. They worked on the browser and reduced the number of wakeups to 316 in 30 seconds, very close to the result that Safari showed.

Other improvements that Google made to Chrome are connected with Google’s search results page. If earlier it used 0.3% of the processor, now it uses only 0.1%. It was reported earlier that the new version of Chrome would automatically block Flash items on the web page, saving even more battery than before.

But Google promises to achieve even higher results in the future.
