How does power saving mode work?

Browsers are the most popular programs today. People use browsers to receive and send email, make purchases online, play games, listen to music, and watch movies. You may open dozens of sites in the browser at the same time, and most of them are probably full-fledged web applications requiring significant memory and power resources. If you are operating your laptop on battery power, the browser load makes it run low on power faster.

Use the power-saving mode to prevent your battery from running low too quickly. In this mode, Yandex Browser:

  • Reduces activity of the background tabs.
  • Always uses the video card to play video.
  • Reduces the FPS of the pages.
  • Disables animation in browser interface elements if it is too CPU-intensive.
  • Disables background animation.
  • Disables video playback in high quality (1080p and higher).
  • Takes other actions to optimize power consumption.


When you disconnect your laptop from power, Yandex Browser enables the power-saving mode by default and alerts you:

To view your laptop's battery charge, click to the right of the SmartBox.
Note. If you don't want to see the icon, click  → Settings → Tools. Under Power saving mode, deselect Show power saving icon.


For the current session
  1. Click to the right of SmartBox.
  2. In the window that opens, disable the Power saving option.
  1. Tap  → Settings.
  2. Click Tools.
  3. In the Power saving mode, disable the mode (the Enable automatically option).


You can choose when the power saving mode is enabled:

  1. Tap  → Settings.
  2. Click Tools.
  3. In the Power saving mode section, select the required option from the list. The browser will turn on the power saving mode when the power cable is disconnected, or if the battery charge is below 80%, or 50% or 20%.
