It seems (to me!) a very helpful preference for Low Power Mode would be auto-enabling on battery — much like the system level Battery-specific features.
Given Orion's claim to fame as the most efficient browser, I'd love a bit more granularity on optimising for performance/battery.
I could see an "Auto Low Power Mode" feature being exposed in a new "Performance" (or more generic "Optimise") preference pane along with a few of the Per-Site Features, like Blocking Web Fonts, Content Blockers and Javscript.
I guess the main complication here is one could see these as "just" performance settings that apply all the time, or the more advanced approach would be to mirror System Settings and offer "Battery" and "Power Adapter" toggles for these settings.
Finally, having a "Battery" specific preference pane would allow users to set the battery level Low Power Mode automatically kicks in (above the current fixed 10% threshold.)
An added benefit of promoting these features to Preferences would be increasing visibility of these features, thereby better promoting these "unique value props" of Orion.
This may be less of an issue for Silicon Macs, but my 6-Core Intel Core i7 has pathetic battery performance, and I'm tethered to a desk — so it'd be awesome to use Low Power Mode (and maybe Tab Groups) to dramatically lessen browser load I need open for work (Jira, Confluence + other docos, Miro, research, myriad other web apps.)
The ability to control these settings on Power Adapter could really help users of lower spec Macs or esp on slower networks.
Thanks for any consideration. 🙏 👍
