Google Chrome 44 Will Save Your Battery LifeIn 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.

In a recently announced move, Opera Software and search giant have come to an agreement and will be extending their partnership where Google continue to be Opera’s default search engine on both desktop and mobile platforms.

Well, it’s not exactly a security vulnerability as the only issue with UC Browser is that it does not encrypt traffic, which could allow your network operator or in-path actor on the network to access your data.
