    Not a Chrome user myself.. but may be of interest..

    Google Chrome may be the most popular internet browser out there, but a series of tests conducted by rival company Microsoft, show how much it is eating up your laptop's battery.

    The experiment saw Microsoft stream the same video on four unplugged, identical laptops. The only difference between them was the browser the video was being played on.

    Up against the clock in Microsoft's lab was Mozilla Firefox, Google Chrome, Opera and Microsoft Edge.

    The results clearly put Google Chrome at the bottom of the pack, with the laptop's battery only lasting 4 hours and 19 minutes
