    Chrome has been eating my Data and a battery when my phone isn't even on.
    It also heats when I'm actually using chrome with screen on.
    Is there a solution or browser replacement?

    Droid Razr Maxx 4.1.2 Stock

    -Go to Manage Apps.

    -Find Chrome.

    -Clear Cache.

    -Clear Data.

    -Reboot.

    If the problem still is not resolved:

    -Uninstall Chrome.

    -Reboot.

    -Reinstall Chrome.

    If that does not resolve the problem:

    -Search for "Browser" in Play Store.

    -Install new Browser.

    If it still happens with another Browser:

    -Backup your data and FDR.

    I would suggest using Greenify to hibernate Chrome until you actually click on the icon. I like Chrome because it immediately syncs across devices.

    I don't use Chrome's syncing feature. I'll check out Greenify, i hope that doesnt drain my battery.

    Also, Chrome uses 8% of battery when not in use and swiped off the app switcher

    I don't have root, so no greening for me. Any other suggestions?

    I would disable chrome and use the stock browser it's much quicker and more stable. Chrome is too buggy on the razrs. I try to use it from time to time because I like to use the sync between my tablet and pc, but it's pretty much unusable on my max. I get excited when there is an update for Chrome and try it out, but it's way to laggy and crashes.

    Got it down from 8% of battery to 2% by disabling some add-ons and plug ins that were useless. Ill see how it goes the next few days

    Its idle when I don't use my phone and its closed. When I DO use it I use it for a while. That image is when the phone was not in use for some time.

    I think your best options are to either delete Chrome, use only the default browser, or root and use Greenify. I just checked my battery and my Greenified Chrome didn't even show up on my battery usage.
