Microsoft Says Google Chrome Web Browser Reduces Battery Life on PC More Quickly Than Edge Browser
Microsoft posted a video of its battery experiment on browsers Monday, saying, “Microsoft Edge Lasts 70 % longer than Chrome, 43% longer than Firefox, and 17% longer than Opera.”
This week, Microsoft released testing claiming that Windows 10’s Edge browser reigned supreme when it comes to battery life. But Opera says the deck was stacked.
If you’re a regular user of Google’s Chrome browser then you’re probably aware of the effect it has on your laptop battery life. Google has previously promised to improve battery life with Chrome, but most of the quick fixes haven’t made a big difference yet. Microsoft has been busy conducting its own series of battery test experiments in the meantime, to prove what we already know: Chrome drains your battery.
Microsoft has created two tests to measure the power consumption by browsers: the first is a test in a lab-controlled environment measuring typical browsing behavior on popular sites, while the second experiment times how long streaming HD video lasts. Unsurprisingly, Chrome lasts just four hours and 19 minutes on the streaming video test, compared to seven hours and 22 minutes for Microsoft’s Edge browser.
Comments: Google Chrome Web Browser Reduces battery
Doing this testing on just the Microsoft Surface Book is a bit disingenuous. Their browser should be optimized to work with their OS and hardware. How does it do on other equipment and operating systems? Don’t get me started! Edge was supposed to run Chrome extensions and it doesn’t. Battery life is the least important thing to consider when choosing a browser. Yes, Chrome is a memory hog, but it’s functional. If Windows 10 would release memory from core functions to productive use that wouldn’t matter.
