What I did, to allow me to have 1 day plus 6 hours, with 60% charge left (!!!) (the secong image shows the HUGE discharge curve, with the Google+ app's settings to allow auto-backup, etc):
1. Completely turned off any kind of auto-back of photos, etc.
2. Left Google Now ON (because I get updates on Google Glass).
3. Opted out of interest-based ads
4. Left alone the Android Device Manager, to allow me to remotely locate the device, and also allow remote lock and erase.
That's it! Now I get quite decent battery charge life.
The secret IS in the Settings for the Google+ app!
My Nexus 4, running plain vanilla KitKat 4.4.2:
1. Battery discharge (huge slope!) at a great rate, before I uninstalled the Google+ app.
2. Almost flat after unistalling the Google+ app. What???
Has anyone had a similar problem? IS Google+ the bad app here?
I welcome your comments. Thanks!
Quote from a student about his math teacher. We never know the entire story, unless we hear the whole story.
Using Executive Pro.
However, my business partner sees huge difference on her Mac Pro, as shown in the images below; she did screen grabs on her large-format screen.
1. This is the way it shows on the Chrome browser.
2. The second image is on Firefox.
3. The third image is on Safari.
4. For comparison: The Copyblogger web site's home page, on Safari.
What could account for this huge difference in the way the home page of our web site displays?
By way of comparison she also sent me a screen grab of the Copyblogger web site - image 4.
Is Chrome broken on the Mac Pro?
I appreciate all help. Thanks!

And it won't be visible on the page. Of course make sure to test it out with Google's Rich Snippets tool http://www.google.com/webmasters/tools/richsnippets after you make the change.
Manu Prakash has developed what may be the game-changer in health care in developing countries. Remarkable what a 50-cent, fully-functional microscope can do!
I removed the Google+ app this morning, and the battery life seems to be projecting much better charge life!
Any thoughts about the Google+ app running on KitKat?
Edit to add: Running plain vanilla KitKat 4.4.2
