    Has anyone noticed that there is a difference in battery life depending on the browser used. I noticed last week that when using the chrome browser there seemed to be an increased battery drain. I know the 2014 Air's battery is supposed to last 11h, but I had the distinct feeling that I was going to need the charger long before that; and sure enough I did. I did check the battery usage indicator and it said that chrome was the only thing using the battery at that time. However when I switched to Safari, the battery consumption seemed to be more stable. Has anyone else experienced this?

    Chrome is a known battery hog.

    Then it looks like I'm going to be uninstalling it and sticking with Safari from now on.

    Yep buddy I've faced that too.
    Safari and even other apps that come with it helps it a lot.

    Might wanna try it for slightly longer. When I first started using Chrome on my 2014 air, it drained the battery, but now, I can get 8 hours with chrome running. So long as you don't spend all your time on streaming sites, I think your battery life should be fine
