The German computer magazine c't has tested this recently (issue 15 of this year). Chrome is indeed the browser with the highest system load followed by Firefox and IE which has the lowest load. All browsers draw less current when running on battery powered systems.

Microsoft also talked about forthcoming Windows devices, including $99 tablets, and even had some news about the next version of its operating system, Windows 9.
During the keynote, Microsoft's chief operating officer Kevin Turner told attendees that the tech giant was "really listening and taking feedback" about the next version of Windows from consumers, developers, partners and business customers, so that sounds hopeful. Windows 9 will also offer "game changing functionality for enterprise", apparently.

EBITDA is a major contributor to CEO bonuses and is written into many CEO contracts. Also, lower expenses yields higher margins which has a positive correlation to stock price, which also is a portion of CEO compensation. No CEO worth his weight would take a contract driven solely on profits. That is too easy to lose. No, stock performance is a good one, EBITDA another, but not profits. Owner pay is driven by profits.
