We all know that Chrome is unquestionably one of the best and the most used worldwide web browser which has evolved significantly both by performance level and functionality level. Hence, recently it released the final version of Chrome 57 with an awesome feature.
Finally, Google Chrome 57 Arrived With A Game-Changing Feature
Everyone knows that Google Chrome is one of the primary consumers of a computer’s resources. Among these, the battery is by far the most impaired whenever we surf the Internet and use this browser, of course, Google Chrome.
But with version 57, which the tech giant Google introduced a few days ago, Google Chrome now consume much less power, all thanks to better management of tabs that are not being used.
The version 57 of Google Chrome marks a change that the tech giant Google expected to be further extended in future releases. Finally, Chrome has a much more efficient management of the tabs that are not being used, pausing them and causing them to consume much fewer resources and, consequently, that the battery lasts much longer.
The tech giant Google evaluates that about 1/3 of the high power consumption that Chrome has is the result of tabs that remain in the background and are not actually in use.
However, thanks to API Page visibility where these processes will be controlled. 10 seconds after a separator is placed in the background; the API will evaluate it and check what features it needs, as it will simply disable those that are not essential.
If the page has audio or is using WebSockets or WebRTC links, then the tab will be not paused, since Chrome considers them to be working. The remaining APIs that are in use will be disabled.
According to the tech giant Google information, this new feature can lead to background separators being 35% less active, which indirectly allows a decrease in energy consumption.
The tech giant Google wants to take this concept a step further by completely blocking tabs that are not in use. Chrome 57 is just the first step and developments will continue in future releases.
