Microsoft: IE9 Best at Sparing Your Laptop Battery

Wednesday Mar 30th 2011 by Staff

Microsoft heats up the browser wars again with a claim that IE9 is the most energy efficient.

Cnet: Microsoft is reigniting the browser wars with a new set of benchmark tests that show its Internet Explorer 9 (IE9) Web browser is the most energy efficient and thus will put the smallest drain on your laptop battery. The tests compared the performance of Opera 11, Firefox 4, Chrome 10, and Safari 5 from an Intel laptop running Windows 7. IE9 came in first, followed closely by Firefox and Safari, with Opera and Chrome lagging behind.

Experts point out that the tests could have yielded very different results if conducted on a different operating system, different hardware or different Web sites.
