Google is putting an emphasis on improving its browser''s performance and creating a new performance page to assist users manage how much RAM Chrome consumes, and how it affects battery life. Unlike Microsoft Edge, which only shows an abstract resource savings value, Chrome will be able to tell you exactly how much RAM each "sleeping" tab reallocates for other tasks.
Chrome''s "Memory Saver" feature will have a dedicated button in the Omnibar. This will provide real memory savings as well as a link to performance settings. This will be able to detect "heavy" tabs and see how powerful the built-in memory saver is.
Google Chrome''s "Performance" page is a work in progress, but it is currently missing several of Microsoft Edge''s features. Chrome Canary users may toggle on or off the memory saver and add specific pages to the exception list. While Microsoft''s browser, however, allows users to select when Edge adds active tabs to sleep. Finally, Google''s extra memory-saver to Chrome is great news for the browser that hasn''t recovered from the "most RAM-hungry app."
