Need help conserving that laptop battery?



After a recent test, Internet Explorer 9 proved to be the most energy-efficient browser!

Microsoft compared its new browser with Opera 11, Firefox 4, Chrome 10, and Safari 5 on an Intel laptop, measuring how many watts the machine consumed with the browser idling, showing a news site, and running graphics-intensive Web tests.

  6. Good to know. I'm always struggling with battery life.

    Also, you might want to change some of your text colors- they blend in with the background.

  10. Yeah IE probably only uses less battery because the stuff it needs to run is already intertwined with windows and running anyway.
