Are you sick of the battery on your laptop, tablet or smartphone going flat way too quick? Well so is Google, who has introduced a new Chrome Beta feature.
Apparently Flash content is to blame but only to a degree, if it’s used in a different way it can actually improve the performance of your devices.
Google advises that:
“This feature will be enabled by default on Chrome’s latest desktop Beta channel release starting today, and will be rolling out soon to everyone else on Chrome desktop.”
So instead of all Flash content helping it’s self to your viewing pleasure you will now be able to choose what you do and don’t want running and the rest will just sit there and wait patiently.
“When you’re on a webpage that runs Flash, we’ll intelligently pause content (like Flash animations) that aren’t central to the webpage, while keeping central content (like a video) playing without interruption. If we accidentally pause something you were interested in, you can just click it to resume playback. This update significantly reduces power consumption, allowing you to surf the web longer before having to hunt for a power outlet.”
