    The AndroidCentral article about uninstalling Facebook is spreading, which prompts me to finally ask about Chrome.

    I have never noticed any direct massive drain, but Chrome is often in the top of the stuff that uses battery. The reason seem to be because it keeps the cell radio active. I often see several hours if this when I check. CPU usage and such is often only a few minutes.

    If I'm to switch to all Chrome for Facebook, will this get worse? Who knows ๐Ÿ˜Š But how are the rest of you feeling towards Chrome and battery drain? Many Nexus 9 users are at least blaming Chrome for crappy performance. So maybe it's at least as bad as Facebook?

    Hope to hear some good feedback ๐Ÿ˜Š

    I know my battery life hasn't gotten worse since I uninstalled the FB app and switched to using Chrome for my FB needs.

    Chrome doesn't need to be running to receive facebook notifications via Chrome so battery will only be used when you are using chrome to view facebook.

    Facebook app is always running so using chrome must save some battery drain.
