[Yosemite] Safari eating your battery

in macOS edited August 2015

People say Chrome is a threat to Mac's battery. I used to agree but now, not anymore. 


I don't use flash. I use chrome and safari. When I clicked the battery icon on the top right, it used to show chrome used my battery power the most. Now, it always shows Safari.

If I play the same youtube video with chrome and safari at the same time, safari's use of energy is 15 times more the energy that my chrome uses. 


It is a fact that, now, Safari, which is known for being a "power saver" is using much more energy than it should.
