Gorkha Post



KATHMANDU — Opera on Thursday introduced new feature with its Windows and OS X browser that claims will help extend the laptop battery life by up to 50 percent compared to previous versions of the Opera browser as well as Google Chrome.

The new “Power Saving Mode” is available in the developer stream and works automatically, according to Verge reports. Opera browser will also detect laptop’s battery and will suggest enabling power saving mode if it is running low on power.

This exciting feature won’t be enabled by default, but whenever the power cable is unplugged a blue battery icon will appear next to the browser’s address bar.

The company says once the laptop’s power source has been unplugged, the battery icon will appear next to the search and address field in the Opera browser. Users can click the battery icon to activate the “Power Saving Mode” and flip on the switch.

The company also claims that the power saving comes from a range of tweaks, including reducing memory consumption by background tabs, paused unused plug-ins, and optimizing video playback.

The browser will also indicate turning on power saving mode when the desktop’s battery is running low.

In addition to this, Opera also updated browser’s VPN experience and is now part of the private browsing mode.

The company says that it uses optimisations to save Battery in Opera browser for computer including reducing background activity from tabs, adapting page-redrawing frequency, and tuning video-playback parameters.
