Big power savings from a browser?

As your resident fanatic on battery saving in a laptop, this article caught my attention: http://fossforce.com/2016/05/opera-power-saving-mode-extends-battery-life/. The claim is that a new feature, presently only available in the developer version of Opera, has a power mode that saves a huge amount of battery life. The claim was made for running the browser in Windows 10, and I have to assume that the savings only applies to the power draw of the browser, itself. Still, it's worth a try in Linux.

I saw this in a few places. I was waiting to see if there was independent confirmation.
