Chrome's latest release promises up to a 5x reduction in CPU use and a longer battery

Chrome is now faster and more power efficient.



Read more about Chrome 87 making the browser faster and more efficient.

Or use a more powerful and efficient and NON SPYWARE and browser like FIREFOX.

Eh, I have used Firefox since the initial release of Quantum and whilst I think the addons/extensions do more work for my privacy than the mostly similar browser engines; at least the metadata doesn't go directly to a big corporation that already knows annoyingly much about me.


However, after not caring about privacy at all for a few years into the 2010s, I must admit the accuracy of Google's suggestions in regards to what I really do online have dropped significantly over the past 3 years. I use Ublock origin, plus ghostery, plus a couple of settings to ensure a less accurate online signature, and it is still promising to see the effects.


Don't give up on your privacy.

To begin with, they need to offer a 5x reduction in RAM usage. Then they need to offer all the tools Opera offers like integrated messaging apps, custom screenshot utility with the ability to capture a VERY long page at once, integrated adblocker, etc, to convince me to go back after almost a dacade away from this browser. Extensions are something pretty much all browsers have, and considering most browsers these days are chromium based you have a pretty good chance of getting a Chrome extension to work on a different browser. I've never had one that didn't work on opera to this day. So...

It takes some effort, but I've got some protections in place.

Known bad domains are blackholed by my DNS (pi-hole) and I enable JavaScript and cookies on a whitelist basis. I guess I could go further by making browser fingerprinting more difficult, and by using a VPN so it would be a shared IP. But I have my doubts that companies outside Facebook go that far.

And I generally just give garbage data if I register, if websites ask something silly like birthdates and real names.

On another note, I've never had RAM issues with either Firefox or Chromium... Even on 4GB laptops. I assume people just look at their task manager shaking their fist, if they consume more than some arbitrary amount.
