Microsoft Has Proven That Google's Chrome Browser Drains More Battery

Google Chrome, which is one of the most widely used browsers globally with about 55.7% share on desktop and 34.6% market share on mobile. However, in a recent test performed by Microsoft, they proved that Google Chrome drains laptops battery more than any other browser.

Microsoft performed a test with four similar Surface Books streaming media from four
different web browsers
. The test was timed and the computer running Google Chrome was the first to die after 4 hours and 19 minutes.

The next to die was the Firefox which lasted for 5 hours and 9 minutes.

Opera has been working on a battery saving feature and this seems to be quite effective as the computer running the browser lasted 6 hours and 18 minutes.
microsoft battery test result against chrome

Microsoft Edge took the crown as the machine running it lasted 7 hours and 22 minutes, giving it about 3 more solid hours of use over Google Chrome.

This is just a business strategy.
Microsoft is trying to persuade people to use its browser, but apart from this great battery management, the browser still has a lot of catching-up to do with the rest. Lack of extension is one of the reasons a lot of people are yet to adopt it, unavailability on mobile platforms like Android and iOS is another.

Facebook To Add Face Swap In Its Video Live Streaming - Like Snapchat

Some many features are been added to facebook on a daily basis, some noticeable, while others are not. But facebook is specially expanding and improving its live video platform this year, starting with using video clips has dp, introducing facebook camera, adding video replies in comments and now support for face-swapping app MSQRD.

In the coming weeks, you can go live on Facebook from the MSQRD app and utilize its many different Snapchat-like masks and filters while the video is running. However it's unknown if it'll integrate it to the Messenger App.
facebook face swaping feature

Facebook’s director of product, Fidji Simon, announced MSQRD integration today at VidCon, the annual online video conference in Anaheim, CA.

Snapchat purchased facial recognition startup Looksery last year to build out its selfie lens store. And with the help of Looksery, a face-swap technology similar to MSQRD's was developed. The goal is to make video, whether recorded or broadcast live, as dynamic and appealing as possible.
Snapchat's lenses have been a huge hit, so it's no wonder Facebook has acted fast to incorporate MSQRD technology into its fast-growing Live platform.

Also, starting later this summer, you'll be able to invite a friend to "drop in" on a live broadcast on facebook." With this format, one can perform: interviews, debates, duets, collaborations, and more,"
Facebook wrote in a press release.
The company will also soon let you schedule a live broadcast, and it's built out a lobby system so people can hangout before one starts.

Both features will launch later this summer for owners of Verified Pages, but Facebook expects to make them widely available shortly thereafter.
In one sense, Facebook's move is another amplification in the
ongoing video and messaging war the company is waging against Snapchat. Who do you think will win?

New Android Virus Called Godless, It Can Destroy 90% Of Your Phone

Android OS is under attack by a very deadly malware/virus which can completely destroy its victim's device. This malware called Godless has been recently discovered, and it claims to targets devices running Android Lollipop or earlier. Godless Malware virus

The above image shows countries which Godless Virus has penetrated, and as you can see, India is taking number one spot with affected android devices clocking 46%. This is quite surprising as approximately 1 billion Indians don't browse. So how come did this malware hit them so hard? (reports coming soon).

Godless seems to be attacking more android devices in Asia, as Indonesia and Thailand are reportedly the second and third countries infiltrated with this dangerous malware. Let's take a look at some facts about this virus below.


  1. Godless repeatedly downloads unwanted apps, silently install them, and often display malicious ads.
  2. Godless uses a framework called "android-rooting-tools" to gain root access to Android-based devices.
  3. Godless has already infected over 850,000 devices worldwide, bad actors delivered it through malicious applications deployed in legitimate app stores, including Google Play.
  4. Godless also installs back-doors and spy on users.
  5. Even if your Android device is not rooted, Godless will root it for you without you knowing.
  6. Numerous applications on Google Play store were found to be containing malicious code affiliated to Godless.

This virus is really bad mehn, lets see some preventive measures, because if your android device gets affected with Godless, you won't be able to use the phone unless Android comes up with a counter attack against this virus (which I hope they'll do soon)


  1. >>Always review the developer when downloading an application, and should be wary of unknown developers with very little or no background information, as they could be the source of malicious apps.
  2. Download apps from trusted stores.
  3. Stay away from playstore for now

Android operating system has been vulnerable to malware attacks but always find a way out, we hope they do so against Godless. Kindly share this.

Tecno Camon C9 is being marketed more as a camera smartphone and that even reflects in the packaging of the device.
tecno camon c9 marketed more as a camera smartphone

Thankfully, we now have Tecno Camon C9 in our hands and we’d ask that you join us in unboxing the smartphone.

Apart from features or design, Tecno did a great job in packaging camon c9.
The packaging consists of two packs featuring three major colors; Black, Blue and silver.
tecno camon c9 pack colors

As you can see on the pack something that resembles a camera lens, which we believe is what the smartphone is channeled at. The pack can be detached from the main blue pack containing all that Tecno has to offer with the Camon C9.

There’s nothing necessary at the sides of Tecno Camon C9 pack, except for the Tecno brand stated at all sides of the black and silver color pack.

While at the bottom of the pack are the usual details we see almost on all phone packz; the phone’s specs, a label containing information on the phone’s color variant, IMEI number and a few other information that you probably shouldn't care about.

We're gradually coming to the part where (I think) you all have been waiting for. However, unboxing the park, the first thing your eye will behold is the majestic and amazing Tecno Camon C9.

Still perusing through the pack, these are basically what you’d find:

Tecno Camon C9 smartphone itself is available in three basic color variants. However, we have the sandstone black color variant here at Techpaded.com

The front facing 13 megapixels camera is located at the top-center part of the screen while the front facing flash is at the top-left side of the screen. Same line with the camera placement.

At the top of the smartphone, is the 3.5mm jack for earphones and headphone. There’s nothing more in that region.

The 13 megapixels rear camera is found at the back (center top) and just after the camera, you have the LED flash, then Tecno branding.
