Browser Energy-efficiency Graph: IE9 Tops List

No matter what market you look at there are always battles going on, be it the operating system, handsets, tablets and also web browsers. The web browser battle has been waging for sometime, and it seems that things are looking up for Microsoft once again. We say this because of a recent browser energy-efficiency graph shows that iE9 has topped the list.

Whenever we think about browsers we always think about performance, system resources and features — never about how much energy it consumes. However, when you think about it, it is one feature that is very important, as many of us will be viewing the browser on a laptop.

Looking at the graph you will see how many watts and how long the battery life on the test laptop while browsing news websites lasts. Opera 11 looked to be the most power hungry, with Firefox 4 coming in second next to Internet Explorer 9.

Three tests were run in all on the Intel laptop running Windows 7, the first was just to open a blank page, the second a new website and the third test was to run Galactic. Visit Mashable for all four graphs. Now we do not know about you, but we care more about how fast a browser is rather than getting a couple more minutes out of the battery on a laptop.

Is energy-efficiency important to you when it comes to choosing a browser?
