Latest Chrome Update for Android Will Reduce Charging Usage Even More

Chrome is the perfect browser. In any case, this impression is formed if you look at how often Google releases updates for it. Unlike most competing browsers, Chrome regularly receives major updates that expand its functionality. In the last few months alone, the search giant's browser has received a number of security mechanisms that prevent the download of unsafe files, a special JavaScript refresh timer that extends autonomy, and much more. But the improvements did not end there.

Google Chrome for Android gets another major update

Google continues to experiment to reduce the power consumption of Chrome. This time, the company's developers were targeting the mobile version of the browser. To make it use less energy, the company decided to add a special meta tag to the Chrome code to optimize the websites that the user opens. Thanks to him, the browser will adapt the site for demonstration in a special way, so that it will less load the smartphone's hardware.

Conserving battery power and CPU resource is important for computing devices. Websites that place a significant load on the CPU or battery tend to do so due to lack of optimization. Most modern operating systems have power saving features that work when battery levels reach critical limits. Ideally, websites should also conform to this add-on, explained the Google developers.

In simple terms, Google wants to teach Chrome to adapt the sites that the user opens, according to certain criteria in order to save battery life. The browser will independently determine which requirements a particular web page meets and which does not. Therefore, for one it will be a decrease in the frame rate, for another – changing the layout, for the third – disabling trackers and scripts, and for the fourth – blocking advertisements.

Website optimization will depend not only on the pre-established requirements of Google Chrome, but also on the battery level of the smartphone, adapting to specific operating conditions. If the battery level of the device used for web surfing is high enough, the optimization will be minimal, and if it is low, then the maximum. Thus, it is planned to allow users to effectively work with websites, without rushing fearing that their smartphone will run out of power if they suddenly open a too heavy web page.

Overall, Google's policy towards improving Chrome is encouraging. By all accounts, the search giant really wants to make its browser as competitive as possible. After all, no one wants Apple – the competitor of everyone and everything – to blame you that your product is worse than hers. As recently as June, Tim Cook announced that Safari outperformed Chrome in both security and performance by a whopping 50%. It is logical that Google did not like the fact that Cupertino is flaunting this superiority, and decided to correct the situation.
