It is normal that even with the updated core firefox consumes 2 times more power than chrome?

As an experiment, I opened both browsers (firefox 67.0 and chrome 74.0.3729.169) in incognito mode. All add-ons were disabled. Went to the same page with the video and started playback at the same time. Both Windows were of equal size and worked the same period of time (about 8 hours). Based on the results, firefox consumed almost 2 times more energy, and therefore consumed significantly more resources. Is this normal, or is there some way to fix it?
