Optimize Your Web-surfing Strategy for a Remote Work World

Browsing efficiency is the latest "thing" to know

The good news about working in a remote environment these days is that nearly all of the apps you need are just a browser click away. The bad news is that your browser may not be managing all those apps and tabs efficiently. And that means performance is a constant struggle on many modern browsers, especially Chrome.

There’s a long-running meme going around about Chrome being a never-satisfied memory hog, eating up every megabyte of RAM your computer can spare. And then there’s the issue of battery life, which Chrome is notoriously bad at optimizing, particularly on MacOS. Most major browsers depend on a variant of Chrome’s underlying Blink engine, which means your really nice computer might not be able to handle all the surfing you’re doing.
