About Chrome and the Nexus 10
I have been using both for a while now - well, since the N10 was release and I got one for myself. In addition to Chrome, I also use - only to try though - Dolphin (Jetpack) and Boat. The latter seem quite fast etc.
The question I have, however, is about Chrome. Is it true that Chrome uses more battery? I ask this because it seems that when I use Chrome (say, with a max of three tabs open at the same time), the battery expenditure seems a bit high. Of course, this is all very unscientific - I am just going by what I see and no benchmarks or anything.
But for your folks (especially those who do use the N10), can you confirm it? When I say Chrome uses more, I mean compared to Dolphin and Boat.
While I would like to use the others more extensively, the problem is the syncing capabilities of Chrome which I use - almost always - on my desktop. It also means that all my bookmarks etc are in sync. I tried to import them into the other two browsers - it worked on Boat, but not in Dolphin (some were imported, but most were not - I don't know what I am doing wrong though).
Anyways, I'd like your views on the Chrome and battery expenditure matter.
Thanks in advance!
