Google continues to work on making its Chrome web browser more energy efficient. The US giant is said to be testing a new feature that would allow websites to activate a power saving mode.
Thanks to a meta tag that developers will have to add to their pages, the most resource-intensive websites will be able to adapt their performance and thus reduce their impact on the autonomy of the machine. The main target is video streaming platforms or certain video conferencing tools.
When sites that have integrated the dedicated tag detect that the PC is using a power saving mode, they can choose to reduce the video quality or even stop the execution of certain scripts.
