What's new

Google Chrome causes laptop drain and battery issues.

I have switched back to mozilla after 5 years now. Even with the Chrome registry fixes, the quality is still horrible.


I use chrome for google play music only. gpm on firefox would drop/stutter audio on a regular basis - only on the sp3 though. Never had any issues on desktop.

I've switched to IE as well. The only things I miss are 1) Chromecast support and 2) the Evernote Web clipper. Otherwise, I've switched to Skype from Hangouts for messaging (mostly) since Hangouts isn't supported on Windows Phone, and IE and Bing for my browsing/searching needs. Other than the two things I mention here, I haven't really missed Chrome at all (and when I need to Chromecast I just use one of my Android tablets).
