    I have had some issues with chrome running in the background with my old phone so I stopped using it. Has anyone else noticed that?

    I use Chrome. Haven't seen any issues with it WRT battery drain.

    You should have set this up as a survey. I use chrome, but make sure to kill it when I'm done using it. When I forget, it can suck down my battery at 5-10% an hour. Anyone know if that's a bug or is it some feature? PITA, but best browser IMHO.

    I use Chrome. Question though - by pressing and holding the Home button, you can access the Task Manager. When I open it, I don't see any active apps. Does this mean that Chrome is NOT running?

    When I see it and kill it, it is in background mode, apparently using resources when waking periodically. Not sure what the home button shows, maybe only active. I use the app SystemPanel Lite to spot and kill battery-sucking apps. Most of them don't run continually and therefore show up as background.

    Greenify is the hands down best app for me that kills apps running in the background

    Boat and Chrome mainly. I also have Flashfox and UC Browser as they still support Flash. The latest update to Boat may allow it too, but I haven't checked.
