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.
  • It uses less memory with an updated JavaScript engine.
With this new improved engine V8, Google alleges that Chrome now spits out pages 10 to 20 percent faster than before. V8 which is Google's open source JavaScript engine has been written in C++ and is used in Chromium and multiple other embedding applications.
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.
For now, you can give the current Chrome update (version 59.0.3071.92) a download through the Play Store. Keep in mind that it is rolling out as we speak, so be patient if you do not see the update yet.
