New Chrome features are all-set to enhance your browsing experience by manifold. Google, which enjoys unmatched supremacy among browsers thanks to its Chrome, has revealed of late, that there would be two brand new Chrome features very soon.
For the uninitiated, Google rolls out new updates for its browsing platform, Chrome, from time to time. Though it happens to be the most popular web browser in the world and Firefox, Safari or Microsoft Edge do not come even anywhere close, there has been a continuous attempt to bolster it by adding new functions with every single update.
It has been learned that this time, there will be two amazing features, all freshly minted, which will make your web browsing experience even seamless, come the next update. These are Chrome Memory Saver and Chrome Energy Saver. Let’s delve deeper with them and analyze all aspects apart from providing you the simplest guide to have them in a hassle-free manner.
New Chrome Features: Tailor-Made for the Ultimate Performance
At the moment, everyone is craving for a faster web browsing experience. But Google strongly feels that in order to ensure a top-notch browsing performance one must pull something beyond mere speed off. Then only, it could tick all the right boxes. This very thought remains at the heart of the idea behind the new Chrome features.
We have found echoes of this thought in the words of Mark Chang, Group Product Manager, Chrome, during Google’s official announcement about the upcoming Chrome features. Chang went on to say, “With the latest release of Chrome on desktop, we’re introducing two new performance settings so Chrome uses up to 40% and 10GB less memory to keep your tabs running smoothly, and extend your battery when it’s running low.”
Hence, Chrome will now be optimized for your device’s battery and system memory thanks to the upcoming browser update. Therefore, firstly, it would be of great help for those who have a habit or are compelled to keep several tabs open at the same time. Also, during times of emergency, when your device’s battery level hits rock bottom and there’s no charger around.
How Do the New Chrome Features Work?
Memory Saver mode has been specially designed to free up memory from tabs you are not currently using so the active websites you are browsing can have the smoothest possible experience. This becomes quite handy when you are running other intensive applications, like editing family videos or playing games. Moreover, you don’t need to worry a bit as any inactive tabs will be reloaded right away when you need them.
On the other hand, if you are running low on battery and don’t have a laptop charger at your disposal, then the new Chrome Energy Saver comes to your rescue. If you are browsing the Web with Chrome and your device battery level plunges down to 20%, Chrome will automatically start saving battery by limiting background activity and visual effects for websites with animations and videos.
How to Get the New Update?
We have come to know that the new Chrome update will be coming to a wide range of operating systems, which nearly covers all the popular OS platforms. Namely, Windows, macOS and ChromeOS, which means you would be able to enjoy the all-new Chrome Memory Saver and Chrome Energy Saver on your Chromebook and MacBook apart from the regular Windows laptops.
Meanwhile, here’s how you can easily update your Chrome through some simple steps to enjoy the new features.
- Go to Chrome on your desktop.
- Look at the top right and click the three-dot icon.
- Open Help > About Google Chrome.
- Select Update Google Chrome. In case you don’t come across this button, be rest assured that you’re already on the latest version.
- After the update is complete, kindly relaunch the Chrome browser.
- Go to Settings, you will get to see a new Performance sidebar menu with the two new features – Chrome Memory Saver and Chrome Energy Saver.
In all likelihood, this much-awaited update will be out in the next few weeks.
