How to get more battery life on Macbook by reducing tabs in browsers

Gizmodopointed us to someresrchcarried out by someone who must be the poster child for having too much time on your hands: he decided to msure the amount of power aMacBook Prouses for ch tab open in a browser. The answer, in case you were curious, is 0.19 watts per tab inSafariorChrome.There is some point to it, though: the experiment showed that having 100 tabs open reduces battery-life by around an hour. While I doubt that many of us have quite that many tabs open at any one time, it does suggest that when you’re trying to eek out as much usage as you can from a battery, closing unnecessary tabs will buy you at lst a little more time.
