99.9% of users wouldn't know why their phone battery is dying more quickly. They'd just complain that the latest update (or whatever) made their phone worse.

I guess they could have some sort of pop up saying "The website you're visiting is using a technology that uses more power on your phone" but that seems like a pretty crappy compromise.

everyone feels their phone getting hot when the battery has a high drain for long and will quickly associate to a site.

thinking users are dumb is just gate keeping by oh-so-clever-engineers
