Chrome loads part Flash objects for longer battery life laptop




Google wants Chrome users give a longer battery life by more economical to go with Flash content. Flash objects that are not important for the functioning of a page, for example, in ads, are not loaded by default.

Google said to have collaborated with Adobe to implement the functionality. Content is important for a web page, such as a video player, will be loaded but for example a Flash banner is not. A user must then click the paused Flash content to play him again. According to Google, the measures are primarily intended to achieve longer battery life on laptops.

The functionality has been rolled out to the beta channel of Chrome, but will “soon” to all users through a release in the stable channel. To our knowledge, the functionality is not opt-in, and is enabled by default. However, Google says there that it may be that users must enable the functionality itself.
