New technique to save memory

The American tech giant will be enriched with new parameters allowing it to be less resource-intensive on Windows, macOS and ChromeOS. He revealed on Friday, Dec. 8, that he was rolling out two new tools for Google Chrome, his home web browser, according to CNBC. The revolutionary aspect of Chrome lately comes in the next version of the Chrome 107 browser, Redditor Leopeva64-2 who spotted this feature in the options.

To simplify the saving way, it is possible to put tabs to sleep when not in use. These two new features, aptly named Energy Saver and Memory Saver, were expected to make the most-used browser a more efficient app on Windows, macOS, and ChromeOS. Its users will have the option to enable each of the efficiency modes through Chrome’s settings under the Performance heading.

If, over time, the computer loses speed and its use becomes more laborious, there is no need to invest in a new device. Chrome will invest in saving memory for more comfortable and secure use, offering many options to improve its performance and increase its speed. It will automatically switch to “Power Saving” mode to extend battery life if the battery reaches 20% or the laptop is unplugged from the AC outlet. This tool will automatically reduce background activities to drastically limit visual effects in the browser.

Indeed, this energy saver is not totally unknown because it is already integrated, but not activated by default, in Google’s web browser, since the Chrome 108 update available since the end of November. With these initiatives that aim for improved fluidity, Google is also launching the “Memory saving” mode. This configuration is for people with a lot of tabs open at the same time.

After activating the “Memory saving” mode, priority is given to the tabs that are actually used by the Internet user. Chrome therefore frees the memory of inactive tabs which can be reloaded immediately when needed. Tabs that users haven’t touched in a while will be paused. They will no longer consume resources and therefore have no impact on RAM.

As soon as the user returns to them, they will reactivate in the blink of an eye. It therefore seems preferable for Google Chrome to preserve the Ram of its users; with this new option available: Memory Saver, works in a very simple and fluid way.
