    The webpage you are viewing has a greater impact to consumptions than the type of browser IMO. It depends how much javascript, flash and other garbage are loop-running when you try to read the page. Disabling Javascript and Flash may increase your batery life as it reduces resource use, including graphic ones. (on top of being faster and more secure)
    I use NoScript and Ghostery for those kind of reasons.
