Google is immersed in a new experimentation in Chrome seeking to reduce the energy consumption of the web browser in order to maintain the autonomy of the devices for as long as possible.
Gaining in energy efficiency
As noted on the website of the function in experimentation, with it he achieved a «significant (~10%) improvement in CPU time when all tabs are hidden and silent«, which translates precisely into a longer battery life, also considering that the experiment is being carried out on all supported platforms, including mobile devices, where charging their batteries is quite common.
Those users who wish to access the experimental function in any of the mentioned versions, will be able to access it by putting chrome://flags/#quick-intensive-throttling-after-loading in the browser bar, changing the status to Enabled, and finally restart the browser for the new feature to start working.
In principle there should be no problem with the new function enabled, where in fact Google has not noticed a problem in the course of the operation of this capacity, although users can always redo the steps, with the proviso that in this case, they can change the value of the function to Default or Disabled.
It is already a matter of whether the new function can reach all end users in the future.
