Chrome gets memory saving mode

Chrome gets memory saving mode

The developers of Google Chrome have tried to mitigate the problem by optimising the CPU and RAM consumed. As it turns out, Google is now rolling out a new energy and memory saver mode for Chrome on Windows, Mac, ChromeOS and Linux.

The new feature will help reduce the power consumed and helps decrease system resource usage and will be enabled by default on upcoming versions of Chrome. Found in a new ‘Performance’ tab on the Chrome settings page, the Memory Saver functionality works by unloading inactive tabs from memory.

Once users navigate to the tab, it is automatically loaded into the memory again. It also allows users to whitelist certain websites so they are not affected by the memory saver, a useful feature for websites that update information in real-time.
