Recently, however, I've noticed it seemed to take a lot more CPU
time on my Mac than perhaps it should. While I had a few plugins on Firefox, it was nothing significant. So I decided to switch back to Safari (the default Mac browser) and see what happened to my battery life. I was getting just over two hours when disconnected from power while m
ostly surfing the web via Firefox. With Safari I'm seeing around 6-8% CPU usage typically and am over three hours of battery life! I guess it pays to try different things. Hopefully Google gets Chromium released for the Mac soon so I can try that.
