Google announces chrome update to save memory, battery

Washington D C, Sep. 4: Google has announced a new version for Chrome that focuses on making Chrome load faster and use less memory.

According to the Verge, Google will remove the unused memory occupied by the inactive page, reducing page memory use by 10 percent on average.

Google says that the effect is even more dramatic on complex web apps. The company wrote in a blog post that in the case of Gmail the users can free up nearly a quarter of the memory used by the tab.

Also, Chrome now stops Flash animations that are not central to a web page, reducing power consumption. When the user’s restarts the browsers after quitting Chrome accidentally or due to a crash, Chrome will now restore their tabs in the order they viewed them.
