In a world where a lot of people want to have thin devices with a great battery life, it looks like Google has decided that it too want to contribute, but this time with software rather than hardware tweaks.
According to the announcement, the latest Beta version of Google Chrome will now “intelligently” pause Flash content that it will think is not necessary. For example: if you are browsing a page with heavy content, Chrome will pause Flash content on the sidebar but will still allow you to watch a video, play video game or do other activities that are central to the visited page.
As a result, laptop owners could see an improvement in battery life although here is a better solution for you: uninstall Flash.
May, 2015 Desktop Market Share: Google Chrome, Firefox, Opera – Up; Internet Explorer, Safari – Down
Here comes the desktop.
May, 2015 Mobile Market Share: Safari, Google Chrome, Opera Mini, Internet Explorer – Up, Android Browser – Down
It‘s the first day of the summer right here and what better way to start June than to publish fresh mobile market share data numbers.
If you need further proof that Microsoft did indeed took some drastic steps cutting down all the Internet Explorer fat and legacy code that came with it, check the latest Jet Stream (owned by Apple) and Octane 2.0 (owned by Google) benchmarking suite results.
Just recently, we have revealed that Google Chrome has crossed the 25% market share mark on the desktop and now it looks like the search giant has even more things to celebrate. As it turns out, over the course of last month, Google Chrome on mobile has too reached a new milestone and surpassed the 30% mark, up by 2.28 points, from 27.78% to 30.06% and is as close to overtaking Safari as ever.
After months and months of waiting, Google Chrome has finally reached an important milestone and now controls more than 1/4 of all web browsers market share, which is a pretty significant milestone that I am sure many people will celebrate.
Shows its true potential.
Remember the days when one browser developer would create a new benchmark, which (of course) would favor their own web browser and make it appear faster? Then another developer would join and the story continues…
However, now with Project Spartan, it looks like Microsoft’s web browser has surpasses Google Chrome in none other than Octane 2.0 benchmark.
And other awesome tweaks.
One of the cool things that Project Spartan has brought to the table is Cortana (Bing) integration into the URL bar, which allows users to quickly check weather and get other data without entering any web page.
Well, it looks like those using iOS devices can now achieve the very same thing, all thanks to the new Google Chrome update. We are talking about weather, stock data and event math equations.
It just refuses to die.
After revealing the initiative to get rid of the 90s plugins and save the web, it looks like Google just took a step backwards on another front.
Previously, the search giant has announced that they will stop supporting Windows XP on April, 2015; however, that’s no longer a case.
Instead, they have backtracked and will now continue providing updates throughout 2015. Either that or another exception will be made.
