Now Google Demonstrates the same improvements through a comparative video she shot featuring two identical Microsoft Surface Book computers, one of which runs version 46 of the browser from a year ago, and another the latest version. Both play videos from the network continuously until shutdown. The result: the computer that ran the chromium 53 continued to play them almost two and a half hours after the second went out.
The video shows the significant progress it made Google Throughout the development period of a year, but it is important to note two points. beginning, Google It did not even compare the consumption figures of chromium And those of Edge or of other browsers on the market. Second, both computers played only HTML5 videos throughout the test, so it is difficult to assess whether the improvement in battery consumption is significant even during standard browser browsing.
