Chromebooks offer much longer battery life than the average Windows computer, but there’s still room for improvement. The upcoming Chrome OS 105 update introduces new browser optimizations to improve battery life.
Most browsers put inactive tabs into “sleep mode,” which is a nice way of saying they disable or throttle tabs that you’re not actively using. This reduces the CPU load of idle tabs, frees up some RAM, and saves battery life.
Note that the Fast Intense Throttling flag is only available in Chrome OS 105 Dev. It will be a few months before Chrome OS 105 leaves the developer channel and reaches regular users.
