    Is it normal for Chrome and Safari to be constantly listed under "Apps using significant energy"?

    Esp. Chrome - I have 4 tabs, on average, open at a time.

    Or would you advise switching to Fireforx, etc.?

    Depending on the plugins like flash, I wouldn't be surprised. I also think given the prior memory leaks I've seen with Safari, I'd also not be terribly surprised by this.

    Thank you!

    Come to think of it, yes, I happened to download Adobe Flash (because YouTube videos wouldn't play on Safari; Chrome was always listed as 'energy consuming').

    Also... I happened to read Chrome isn't "designed" for Mac, unlike Safari/Firefox. Would this be an appropriate summation?
