Google Chrome Is Getting 2 New Modes for Its Optimization
Google Chrome New Modes Overview
Google’s Chrome desktop web browser has two new performance modes Memory Saver and Energy Saver available starting today. The new modes allow users to reduce Chrome’s memory usage by up to 30 percent and extend battery life when a device is running low on power, Memory Saver mode frees up memory from tabs that aren’t currently in use, which should provide a smoother browsing experience. You can also mark important websites as exempt from Memory Saver to keep them operating at max performance.
First, let’s start the discussion with the Memory-Saver feature. This feature will save RAM for your PC from the tabs that are inactive, and with that, you will have faster browsing as there are no other tabs consuming resources.Sometimes you open multiple tabs in your Chrome, and some of them are running heavily loaded websites, such as those filled with multiple videos or ads. Even if you are not using them, they are still consuming Memory for that data.So this Memory Saver will simply freeze them by identifying if they are not in use, and you’ll have to reload the tab to make it work again.Besides, there will be one indicator too that will show you stats of saved Memory by this feature in KB.
If you have used the Microsoft Edge browser, you might notice a power efficiency feature that saves a lot of energy for your laptop or desktop, and this new Google Chrome Energy Saver will work the same.This feature will activate when your device’s battery goes below 20%, and after that, it will limit some less useful background activity, visual effects, and animations.Also, you can change some settings of these features from the three-dot menu in Chrome, so download the latest release of Chrome to experience these features.
