The New Chrome by Google Loads Pages a Lot Faster
Google Chrome is a fast, easy to use, and secure web browser. Designed for Android, Chrome brings you personalized news articles, quick links to your favorite sites, downloads, and Google Search and Google Translate built-in.
Google recently released Chrome 59 for Windows, Linux, and Mac users, now there is a Chrome 59 for Android users as well. Though the search giant did not include many features, it did apply some tweaking:
- Faster page loading capabilities.
- Full support for animated PNG files
- A new Image Capture API.
- It brings security improvements and stability fixes.
The New image capture API that essentially gives web pages more control over your device’s camera, it lets webpages choose between multiple cameras available on your device, zoom, use flash, and even focus on an image. It takes photos in full resolution as well, and as is the norm, it asks for permission to access the camera before performing the task.
Though Apple and Mozilla already has a full support for animated PNG files in their iMessage and Firefox apps, respectively, so Google is playing catch-up in this regard. Still, the format has gained significant traction, so expect it to be supported by other browsers in the near future.
What folks have their eyes set on, however, is the future Chrome update that includes native ad-blocking. Google gave publishers advancedwarning, and so long as they do not feature offending ads, they will be good to go.
