Facebook in Safari and battery drain?

MacBook Pro - MacRumors Forums - forums.macrumors.com
May sound odd, but is it possible that Facebook in Safari is causing some additional battery drain?

The last two days I've been using the laptop a lot. Yesterday I started about 11:00am and went pretty much until 9:00 last night (with periods of closing it here and there). Maybe 8-9 hours of use. Plugged it in at 8% left.

The day before was similar. Started a little later, and went until 10pm or so pm. Probably similar usage time. Plugged it in at 4% left.

This was mostly email, web surfing and some photoshop/bridge work. Using messages a bit. Playing around and setting up BTT. A little Facebook, but only maybe an hour and closed it when I was done (was posting for work).

Today is the first day I've had Facebook open for any length of time at all. I started at 8am. It's now 2pm and I'm down to 26%. I'm also getting the "Safari is using significant energy" thing in the battery dropdown, which I didn't see at all yesterday, and didn't notice the day before.

Just wondering if anyone noticed this or if it's just me. I mean at 26%, I may still get two more hours and that would put me at about 4pm... that would still be 8 hours.

Feel free to call me crazy...

I really don't have much to complain about overall, even battery life, with this new MacBook Pro...
