A brief guide on how to enable Energy Saver Mode in Chrome

Google Chrome

Google Chrome is a cross-platform web browser introduced by the company Google. It was introduced back in 2008. Initially it was introduced for Microsoft Windows. It was provided with free software components from Apple WebKit and Mozilla Firefox. Later on, new versions were introduced for OS, macOS, iOS, Linux, and Android.

Although, Chrome by Google is a popular browser platform. But it has some limitations and restrictions. These limitations are presented in the form of memory and CPU usage of Google Chrome. To cater to these issues, the company has introduced two new features i.e., Memory Saver and Energy Saver mode. Both new features will help improve the user experience. In this short piece, we will uncover how users can enable the Energy Saver mode to better manage the battery of their devices.

The feature will operate by limiting the image capture rate. Additionally, it will also limit background activities. Users might experience modifications in gaming and video performance.
