The Chrome browser has been upgraded to version 89 on Android as well, receiving more optimizations for managing RAM, which improve application response times and overall user experience.
Google Chrome, the most popular web browser in the world, is trying to overcome its “fame” as a large consumer of memory and processor. Starting with Chrome 89, Google’s browser improves memory performance and efficiency, both in its Android and Windows versions.
With a new advanced memory management algorithm called PartitionAlloc, Chrome promises performance jumps of up to 22% for regular software routines, 8% for web page rendering, and 3% for GPU acceleration. An important aspect is the release of memory resources that are no longer needed, the new somewhat more aggressive algorithm promising a better system response.
For the latest generation Android phones, Chrome has been reorganized and recompiled, with Google engineers achieving an 8.5% reduction in charging time and a 28% improvement in latencies.
Partly, the benefits are due to a newly introduced technology called Freeze-Dried Tabs. In essence, this is a system for saving unused Chrome tabs out of RAM, eliminating as many resources as possible that can improve the overall performance of your phone.
The new version of Google Chrome is already distributed to all Windows, Mac and Android users.
