(Pocket-lint) - Google Chrome is notoriously terrible at hogging system resources and draining your laptop battery, but that might soon change.
The world's most popular web browser isn't generally known for being terribly power efficient, but Google is taking steps to rectify that.
Upcoming updates to the browser seemingly include nifty battery-saving features that'll help combat some of the problems caused by various battery intensive websites.
It's thought that this logic could save minutes, if not hours of battery life, depending on the sites you're looking at and what you're doing at the time.
Websites will also be able to help with this logic by suggesting power-saving settings that Chrome can use and therefore help save user's battery life. This may include things like reducing the frame rate on a page or changing the way scripts run on the page to minimise battery use.
These settings will also change depending on the user's power-saving settings in their operating system too.
The future of browsing the web could be a lot less taxing.
