Opera Software is introducing a new power-saving mode to its desktop browser app, a feature that can be able to extend your Pc battery life up to 50 percent. The company is making the feature available in the developer version of the product before the rolling out begins.

Once you unplug your laptop from a power outlet, you’ll notice a little battery icon next to the URL field in the browser — click that icon and flip the switch to on.

To provide evidence for the claim that the software can save 50 percent more juice, the company has differentiate between the new browser against earlier versions of the Opera browser itself as well as Google Chrome, tested on a Windows laptop running Windows 10 (64-bit) across “11 popular websites.”

So for every two hours of browsing allowed by Chrome or the old Opera, the company suggested that the Opera developer version would get you around three hours.

While the claim is yet to be verify, Opera has explained in details how it optimized the browser’s performance to conserve battery. It credited the savings to a myriad of optimizations, including reducing activities that run in background tabs, fine-tuning video-playback parameters, and adapting page-redrawing frequency.

The new power-saving mode feature is one of the amazing feature we have seen from the in Opera software recently, following the launch of free unlimited VPN App for IOS and the introduction of ad-blocking to its desktop and mobile browsers.
