Google Chrome good or bad for battery performance?

I was wondering if Google Chrome's download on a MacBook Pro or if I should just stick with Safari?  I hear that Chrome is good and bad for performance and life of the battery on the MBP machines.  That you have experienced using this browser?  Thank you.


Try as well as FireFox, and then decide that you prefer. FWIW, I prefer FireFox.

Did not like the answers in your other thread on the same does Google Chrome tend to use more energy on MacBook Pro?

  • Cooling, it is good or bad for the Z5? Advice needed!

    Hi Sony'enthousiasts.

    I love my Sony Xperia Z5. It's a great phone! However, it becomes warm, especially during a hot summer day while using intensely or full sun! Just to be clear, my phone is not overheating.

    The problem:

    The problem is with the battery-life/performative and put in charge while the unit is hot. My phone seems slower load and unload faster when it's hot. Even the closing apps, the screen turns off / stand-by and restart the device do not change the apparent slowdown of the battery performance.


    Today, my phone was hot enough for heavy use. The battery is almost empty and I started to charge, without great results (just constant heat and a percentage or increase of five).

    I used a cool wet towel to remove heat. The towel was a little cooler than the phone. The body of the Z5 is designed to make the internal parts of the heat so my thought was to use the towel to cool the body of my Z5.

    The result:

    To my surprise, the phone can now be charged temperature as it always does. The performance as well. Of course, I was very happy with the results of this experiment of cooling

    My question:

    In light of this;

    1. you are not stupid (throw the Z5 in a freezer or keep it under water

    2. the difference in temperature is not extreme and the glass of the cracks

    Assists the Z5, with bad cooling for the device or the battery?

    Sony Xperia Support, please share your advice

    @VE_ . in my opinion I think this is a good procedure, but I prefer to cool naturally... but the way you describe it is not too drastic a cooling mode, by report you mention to some posts I saw for the Z complete series of phones to put it in a freezer or droppping in water, a much too sudden drop of temperature & asking for trouble

    I don't see your way of cooling affecting or damage to anything related to the components of the phone... but to point out it is my opinion & not Sonys

  • Question about the accuracy of the Total remaining time for battery in Power Meter

    Mr President.

    I checked several laptops that are of the same model, one of them cannot display "Total time remaining" in the power meter. Even other laptops may display, but the values are equivocal. Sometimes the 'remaining power' is 80%, but 'Total remaining time' is 1H20Mins. And sometimes, the "remaining power 'is 75% ', but"the Total remaining time"is 1H30Mins.

    How Windows calculates the 'Total remaining time? I found what OS will have one or two minutes to display "Total remaining time" after I have the power cable plug-out.

    Which is appreciate to get your answer.


    The remaining computing power comes from the numere questioning power management drivers and is a fairly complex calculation based on current usage (the amount of energy is consumed), the capacity of the battery (what total capacity is left and how fully charged is battery) and can also vary depending on what else is plugged into the USB port of the computer , what accessories (memory, video card, etc.) are installed, how good or bad, the battery is to maintain a charge and so on.  There is no particular reason to believe that maybe outside the right-out-of-the-box everything two laptops will show the same calculation even if they are all the same brand and model.

  • Unspecified error C:\Program Files (x86)\Google\Chrome\Application\chrome.exe in Google Chrome.

    Original title: problem Google Chrome Jumplist.

    I have a problem on the points of the Jumplist to the Google Chrome browser. I did a system restore and Google Chrome was broken. When I click on the 'new window' and the 'new incognito window' in the Jumplist, this message is:

    So I tried to copy the user APPDATA chrome.exe and then the error message does not get out, but he has not responded to the command.

    Is it possible to repair chrome or do a clean install?

  • vSphere Web Client 5.5 and Google Chrome

    Is Google Chrome completely broken now for the Web Client? Around Thursday or Friday, it stopped loading on my Chrome installation. Works fine on IE, but I feel dirty using this browser. I know that Google support killing NPAPI (or something like that) and there was a work around for now but not yet that works. If I try to load the Web Client I get a failure just after the VMWARE whitens. VMware is working on a fix, I hope is not support vSphere 6 because Dell is not putting an ESXi Iso approved for the VRTX until the 2nd quarter of 2016.

    If you use Chrome 42, you will need enable support NPAPI.

    Chrome 43 will display the beloved "Aw, Snap!" at the launch of the Web Client vSphere integration Plugin. Try to disable the locking of renderer win32k to work around this problem.

    Hi Abysmal28,
    1. a recent change in software/hardware on your computer?
    As the error message indicates that the programs and applications are not designed for the version of the operating system installed on your computer, I suggest checking the compatibility between applications or programs before installing on your computer.

    Method 1:
    I suggest you uninstall Yahoo messenger and Google chrome and reinstall the application from the link below and see if that makes a difference.
    Uninstall or change a program
    To download the yahoo messenger
    Download Google chrome
    Method 2:
    I recommend you perform the clean boot.
    Put your boot system helps determine if third-party applications or startup items are causing the problem. If so, you need to maybe contact the manufacturer of the program for updates or uninstall and reinstall the program.
    See the following article in the Microsoft KB for more information on how to solve a problem by performing a clean boot in Windows Vista or Windows 7:
    How to troubleshoot a problem by performing a clean boot in Windows Vista or in Windows 7 
    Note: after a repair, be sure to set the computer to start as usual as mentioned in step 7 in the above article.

    "I have internet explore and google chrome on pc." What delaults will run my pc correctly? »

    Firefox? No, really, the browsers are largely subjective. Many people swear by Chrome, but
    many people swear to the Chrome. Even with IE and Firefox, but I have used Firefox for
    about nine years.

    Other considerations are your internet connection stability and speed.
    Try to run the speed Test (type this name in your search engine) to check if you have found
    good speeds. This after the browser is de-energized as long as you are connected to the internet server
    can slow down during peak periods.
    For example, my broadband speed will reach 20 + but will drop to less than 5 between
    6-8 PM on occasion. It is always a high speed and wasn't about to give up, just an example of
    how a connection can vary.
    You need to get off near the speeds of dial-up (or should we say slowing down) before having
    dropping out of school due to the lack of speed in most cases.
    The other possibility is the quality of the line of your home Exchange.
    Old copper cable can also cause dropouts

    What I've read, Facebook has frequent problems, probably for similar reasons, but in this
    the case that it would be their own updated servers to the test under heavy traffic load.

    Also make sure you have Adobe Flash and Shockwave and another browser "plug-ins" to date. -

    Hi guys,.
    Videos YouTube played very well in the morning, but stopped playing recently on my PC and laptop at the same time. I updated Firefox to version 34.0.5 and Adobe Flash player version, but that did not fix the problem. My Google Chrome still works fine with videos of youtube.
    I have the following extensions on Firefox:

       Flshblock 1.5.18

    Any suggestions or ideas?
    Thank you.

    You have Flashblock installed 1.5.18 on Firefox. Mozilla Firefox does not completely support HTML5 for YouTube Player. Your extension is blocking Flash Player, which in turn blocks YouTube videos.

  • Solution for Google Chrome (Helper) by using a lot of ram and cpu on mac os x

    Hi all

    Some people have several tabs of google chrome, and it's using a lot of RAM. It also causes the fan go crazy sometimes. I looked for a solution for centuries, but no solution has allowed, until I stumbled upon the simple solution to use a google chrome extension that hibernates unused tabs. The problem has now completely disappeared.

    There are a few different extensions that Hibernate unused tabs, but the only extension which has enough options setting to do what I want, is called "The Great Suspender".

    You can set the time, after which the Hibernate (sleep) tab. The tab automatically resumes when it focuses on, (i.e., you don't need to then also click on a specific button). And the tabs of the extended day before will remain in hibernation after you restart the computer.

    There are many other parameters that can be changed. (After you have made changes, don't forget to click the 'save changes' button.)

    I hope this helps.

    Thanks for the tip.
