Today, Microsoft released a document that was a bit embarrassing, claiming that in the Windows 8 operating system, if everyone gave up chrome and Firefox and switched to IE 10 browser, the energy saved could be used by 10000 households in the United States. I don't know if users really realize the power saving effect. I don't know how Microsoft's specific testing methods are.
Why is this so? Microsoft explained that during the development, Microsoft focused on making ie faster, and IE could make better use of modern PC hardware (such as local video card) to improve rendering speed.
When using the browser, you may not pay much attention to how much energy it consumes. However, considering that we spend a long time on the notebook browser, it makes sense to save 18% of the energy than other programs (Microsoft said).
On the whole, we can save 120 million kilowatt hours (KWH) of electricity with ie, and the carbon dioxide emission reduction is equivalent to planting 2.2 million trees.
In 2011, Microsoft also published a report claiming that IE 9 is better than chorme, Firefox and safari. This time, Microsoft said ie is the most energy-efficient browser on windiwos 8.
Microsoft, which is struggling on Windows 8, is facing the loss of Internet Explorer share. I don't know if it can turn the user's heart with such words!
