You can turn on battery saver mode at any time, or set it to kick in automatically when your battery is less than 20 percent.

There is an option that can be enabled if you are using a laptop that is also unplugged.

So it could be a good lifesaver when you’re out and running low on juice.

When the battery saver mode is on, a new leaf icon appears next to the address bar.

The feature works by restricting background activity and reducing visual effects, for example.

Meanwhile, the Memory Saver option frees up memory from tabs you’re not using to make performance much smoother.

Any inactive tabs are still visible, but they don’t do anything until you return to them when they auto-reload.

That means Chrome uses up to 30 percent less memory, Google claims.

You’ll notice a message in the address bar letting you know when Memory Saver is enabled.

But for sites you want to stay active, you can exempt them from a special list.
