How does power saving mode work?

Browsers are the most popular programs today. People use browsers to receive and send email, make purchases online, play games, listen to music, and watch movies. You may open dozens of sites in the browser at the same time, and most of them are probably full-fledged web applications requiring significant memory and power resources. If you are operating your laptop on battery power, the browser load makes it run low on power faster.

Use the power-saving mode to prevent your battery from running low too quickly. In this mode, Yandex Browser:

  • Reduces activity of the background tabs.
  • Always uses the video card to play video.
  • Reduces the FPS of the pages.
  • Disables animation in browser interface elements if it is too CPU-intensive.
  • Disables background animation.
  • Takes other actions to optimize power consumption.
