Google is testing three new memory saving modes, which allow you to configure the browser to automatically deactivate open tabs that are not being used based on user preferences and the needs of their computers.

The company introduced energy and memory saving modes more than a year ago, focused on lower resource consumption in Chrome by limiting background activity and visual effects or by inactivity of the tabs, respectively. These options can be accessed in the ‘Performance’ settings tab of the browser.

Months later, Android Police announced that Google was preparing an adjustment for the Memory Saving function in Chrome, with the aim that the user could configure the inactivity time of the tabs to adapt to the needs of their device.

Google is now considering offering three levels of customization – Moderate, Balanced and Maximum – in the memory saving option in Google Chrome, as recently announced by Windows Report.

These new options, which are being tested through Chrome’s Canary channel, would have been implemented after a series of exhaustive tests aimed at understanding the memory saving mode in the browser developed by Google.

Thus, the company has provided three new Memory Saving options. The first of them offers “moderate savings”, which means that the browser tabs remain inactive after a long period of time.

The second proposes “balanced memory savings”, after recording inactivity for “a moderate period of time.” The third and final one promises “maximum memory savings,” with tabs deactivating “after a shorter period of time.”

The latter is also called Memory Saver Mode Aggressiveness, which may require reloading tabs more frequently, as verified by the aforementioned media.

Along with these three new Settings options, Google will introduce a new visual indicator, with a circular shape, that will allow you to see the inactive tabs that Memory Saver has put on hold. With it, the technology firm hopes to give users the opportunity to easily identify which tabs are not actively consuming memory resources.
