Chrome 87, the latest update to the browser this year, will update the browser management of resources (Associated Press)
Google has released a new update for the Chrome browser, which speeds up the browser, extends the computer’s battery life, and increases its efficiency.
It will also facilitate the new update “Chrome 87” (Chrome 87) – which is the latest update of the browser this year – and revisit the website when clicking by mistake on a link on another page, which is what Google claims confronts the user frequently.
And “Chrome 87” will update the browser management of resources by “controlling tabs, tracking down issues, and caching forward and backward,” according to the blogger of Mark Chang, director of Chrome products at Google.
Tabs control is one of how Chrome manages the number of computer resources used in certain processes. This means that background tabs will not wake the CPU in many cases and not display tabs that users cannot see on the screen.
“This reduces CPU usage by 5 times, and extends battery life up to 1.25 hours in our internal testing, which also does not affect background features such as notifications or music,” says Mark Chang.
“By using this information, Chrome can optimize resources for the tabs that you use, not the ones you have reduced,” Zhang added, “making Chrome up to 25% faster in startup and 7% in loading pages, all with less memory.”
Finally, the back and forth cache that Chrome uses to change pages has been accelerated when a user presses the back or forward buttons in the browser.
“In Chrome 87, cache and instantaneous back and forth will use 20% of front and back navigation operations, with plans to increase this to 50%, through further improvements and communication with developers shortly,” Zhang said of this feature.
And in May, Google also updated Chrome, giving users more control over tabs with a feature called Tab Groups.
Users can now group tabs and name them with a custom name or color before moving or rearranging them.
