Reduce Browser's Energy Impact for playing YouTube Video
< Feedback on YouTube CPU Tamer by AnimationFrame
Everyone should monitor the chrome task manager to check if CPU usage really drop or not.
In my machine, this script even increase the CPU usage when the video paused. Without script it's 5%, but 30% (single core) when script actived. I'm not sure if this really useful.
My practice is to disable service worker to reduce some memory footprint (~ 50 MiB).
If you just pause the video and put it in foreground, I believe the CPU usage might increase.
It will drop if you minimize the window or switch to another tab in the same browser window.
