Chrome Users Rejoice! RAM And Battery Improvements In The Works!

/ 5 years ago

Google Chrome is one of the big Internet browsers. With users loving its speed, its popularity has grown, with the use of extensions and cloud synced settings letting users customise their browsing experience, but at what cost?

Google Chrome is known for two things: the fast speed and the dreadful memory hogging. For each tab of Google Chrome it takes up a space of RAM, quickly racking up how much memory the browser takes, this, however, is not the end of it with memory leaks affecting both open, active and closed tabs alike. This can quickly mean that your fast experience begins to slow and can freeze your computer. For mobile users, these problems are doubled as all the while these issues can quickly drain your battery resulting in no laptop and no internet.

But fear not, Aurimas_Chromium, an engineer for Chrome for Android stated that they are “actively working on reducing battery usage and we are looking into when Chrome is in the foreground and in the background”. He goes on to say that they are looking to improve start-up speeds and are targeting memory leaks and bloating.

Originally praised for its security and performance Chrome has become a common tool for a lot of users, both on their computers and on their mobiles. With potential fixes to memory and battery issues, Chrome could become a more stable and reliable tool on every device it hopes to reach.
