We all know Google Chrome is the best browser in the world but perhaps you didn’t know that it’s the worst browser for your portable devices like Laptops or netbooks. The people behind 7Tutorials.com did a Peacekeeper battery test on worlds top web browsers; Internet Explorer, Chrome, Firefox, and Opera, on a clean install of Windows 7 using the Power Saver power plan, and run three times to get an average for each browser. Internet Explorer 9 came out ahead, providing 104 minutes of battery life in the Peacekeeper test, with Opera not far behind at 100 minutes. Firefox lagged behind a bit at 92 minutes, while Chrome got almost 20 minutes less, lasting only 85 minutes.
Obviously, your result may vary on this, but it’s a good thing to know if you’re in a bind and need to squeeze every ounce of battery from your laptop.
