Google Chrome. Google has received its final update for Chrome 2020, and it brings performance improvements, allowing it to start faster, load pages faster, and offer longer battery life. This development was shared by Chrome’s Product Director Matt Wadlin’s official blog post. Thanks to several hood upgrades, this update brings “the biggest gain in Chrome performance over the years”. Additionally, Google began developing M1’s own Chrome for newer MacBook models, but had to pause for a day.
The last major update to Chrome brings Wadal’s official blog post that it will bring major performance improvements that make launching the browser faster, loading pages faster and consuming less battery. Active tabs are now a priority in Chrome compared to all other tabs. This helps to reduce CPU usage by five times, resulting in an increase of about 1.25 hours of battery life. Google did not share details of the device they rated for these results.
The google chrome browser starts 25 percent faster than the previous configuration and loads up to seven percent of pages. Google claims that Chrome now uses less power and RAM, which is a welcome change for the web browser, which is notorious for using large amounts of RAM. On Android, Chrome now loads pages almost instantly on the go.
Google Chrome also gets a tab search feature that lets you type in a keyword and find the tab you’re looking for. The search button is placed next to the minimization option in Windows and also shows a list of open tabs with the search bar. This search feature works in many Chrome windows. The 2020 update also brings Chrome actions that allow you to perform certain actions from the address bar. For example, if you type “Delete History” in the address bar, you will get an option to “Clear browsing history”. This feature was initially only available on the desktop.
With all these improvements, the blog says that cards will be added to Chrome in the future, allowing you to return to recently visited and related content on the Internet. Chrome will have cards on the New Tab page.
At the time of writing we noticed an update notification in Chrome, but could not find the tab search button after updating to the latest version 87.0.4280.66. Clarification Gadgets 360 has approached Google. This report will be updated when we ask again.
In addition, Google began developing Chrome native for Apple’s M1-powered MacBook models and Mac Mini. However, there were some issues that caused the roll to have to be stopped. Mark Chong, Chrome Product Manager, tweeted that the team had a snack until November 19 and that the rollout should be suspended. The regular version of Chrome works well on M1-powered Apple devices.
