    Which internet browser is the most battery friendly on OS X? I currently use Safari (obviously you'd think apple would make a battery-friendly one), but I was wondering if there was another good browser. I know chrome is pretty battery intensive, which is sad, it's one of my favorites. How is Firefox and Opera and such? Thanks :)

    For me browsers don't really make a big difference in relation to battery life. However, i would imagine that since firefox is a little bit more processor intensive it would take up just a little bit more juice to run.

    Flash on the other hand is pretty processor intensive (on the mac anyway). So if you don't run as much flash stuff you could probably increase your battery life by a little bit.
