Google is seeing a lot of performance improvements and better battery life with Chrome 53 compared to last year's Chrome 46.

Since Opera and Microsoft Edge have been fighting over who saves more energy while playing video, Google Chrome has started to play catch up. Now, Google has decided to show the world, how much Chrome has improved over the last year. In his Chrome blog, Google dedicated a few words on the performance and battery life improvements the Chrome team have been able to achieve since Chrome 46 was released last year. According to Google the current Chrome 53 is offering 15 percent better performance on both Android and on the desktop (measured using Speedometer). 

Battery life has also seen a dramatic increase due to better power saving technology. In a short video, Google demonstrated that Chrome 53 has shown up to 2 hours longer battery life compared to Chrome 46 on two Microsoft Surface models when playing Vimeo videos. OS X has also seen markable power saving improvements of up to 33 percent, Google says. Lets see if Microsoft will update their testbed with the updated Google browser.
