Google recently announced that Chrome 111, which started rolling out on March 1, 2023, will include some new battery optimizations for macOS. The company’s testing says a 13-inch M2 MacBook Pro can now last 18 hours while playing YouTube videos or 17 hours when browsing the web normally.
Enhanced battery performance is good news for Chrome users with MacBooks troubled by poor battery life. As of 2018, more than 100 million Macs were in use, and 25% of Mac users were opting to use Chrome as their browser despite it not being pre-installed on the operating system.
Furthermore, Google is testing a feature in Chrome 100 that throttles timers on foreground pages, reducing CPU usage by around 4%, but this hasn’t yet been rolled out to everyone.
Overall these improvements should ensure that Mac users will be able to get more from their devices without worrying about draining their batteries too quickly when using Google Chrome.
The latest version of Chrome should help MacBook users, in particular, make the most out of their computer’s resources, especially battery life.
So if you’re a Mac user yearning for better battery performance, you definitely want to be on the lookout for when Google releases Chrome 111!
