Memory Saver frees up memory for media-heavy tabs you plan to revisit later.
Energy Saver tweaks webpages when your laptop’s battery drops below 20%.
It limits background activities and webpage animations or videos.
Google Chrome for the desktop is finally getting better at using your computer’s RAM and battery. Memory Saver and Energy Saver are new Chrome features. Both improve web browsing.
Memory Saver in Chrome frees up your computer’s memory from idle tabs for speedier surfing. This is for media-heavy tabs you plan to revisit later.
Memory Saver will stall and inactively reload your tabs. You’ll see a message for memory saver in the address bar and an opportunity to turn it off manually. Google shows you how much memory is saved visually.
Chrome’s Energy Saver feature tweaks webpages when your laptop’s battery drops below 20%. It limits background activities and webpage animations or videos.
Chrome’s menu bar will show when Energy Saver is active. It’s a clickable leaf icon. Microsoft Edge has had this capability for a while, so Google is catching up and making Chrome less power-hungry.
Google says you’ll control both new options. Chrome’s three-dot menu has it. You can exclude websites from memory saver. To update Chrome, click the three-dot menu, then help, then about Google Chrome. Then, restart.
