Battery Saver Mode

Google has been working on some battery and memory-saving features for Chrome and ChromeOS for months and some of those tools have finally appeared in the Stable build of the browser. Still disabled behind a flag, battery saver mode can be set to enable when your device is off charge or when your battery drops below 20%. Once you update to 108, you can enable the flag by pointing your browser to chrome://flags/#battery-saver-mode-available and setting the flag to the enable position. Restart your browser and you’re good to go.
