Enhancements Make Windows 10 Google Chrome Faster, and if you’re a Google Chrome user and you’re maximizing the overall performance of your system, then Google’s recent announcement about their browser is sure to make you smile.
Chrome 89 includes enhancements design to make it run notably faster on Windows 10 and use significantly fewer resources on both Android and macOS-driven devices.
According to the company’s most recent claims, in testing, in the Windows 10 Google Chrome environment, they saw up to 22 percent memory savings when measuring the browser process. They saw another 8 percent reduction thanks to improvements in the renderer and a further 3 percent reduction in the GPU thanks to improved memory allocation. If those numbers even come close to replicating in real-world conditions, that represents a significant improvement indeed.
If you’re a macOS user, then the newest version of Google Chrome will give you more modest memory savings. Even so, an 8 percent improvement is nothing to sneeze at, and version 89 will also include a new tool designed to help you keep your Mac cooler, courtesy of its tab throttling feature. Based on the research from Google Chrome’s engineering team, they’re reporting up to a 65 percent improvement on the Apple Energy Impact score in the macOS Activity Monitor for background tabs when employing this feature. That’s certainly impressive in its own right.
Finally, if you’re an Android user, you can expect to see a 5 percent reduction in Google Chrome memory usage, a 7.5 percent faster browser start-up, and 2 percent faster page loads. That might not make big enhancements on any particular page, but it amounts to a substantial improvement over the course of an entire workday.
Also, note that the latest version of Google Chrome for Android comes with a new feature called ‘Freeze-Dried Tabs, which helps the browser start-up 13 percent faster. Then, Chrome 89 should be high on just about everyone’s wish list.
