Google starts work on Chrome bug that slurps Windows laptop juice

Gregg Keizer | July 21, 2014
Bug reduces battery life by as much as 25 percent, says Microsoft.

(Morris said he had found evidence of the bug in Chromium's bug tracker as far back as 2010; Computerworld was unable to locate such a thread.)

Later on Monday, July 14, Google assigned a developer to investigate the bug, closed the thread to new outside comments, and raised the problem's priority to "1."

The Chromium bug tracker does not indicate when a flaw or problem will be fixed, or which version of Chrome will include the change. Google did not immediately reply to a request for comment.
