Google will be releasing a slew of upgrades for the Chrome browser to boost its productivity and performance.
The company claims to have sped up tab loading within the app by 10 percent, along with other improvements. Chrome will also focus on providing more speed on the tabs you’re actually using rather than the other tabs that are not being actively used.
This will help to improve performance as well as save battery life. You can also hover between the tabs to have a small preview of them. So, you no longer have to open them individually to see each tab.
Back in May, Google debuted the Tab grouping feature, which is still being rolled out to Chrome users. However, Google has already added an enhancement to the function by allowing users to collapse tab groups, offering you more space on the tab bar.
Chrome will also let you fill out and save PDF files “over the next few weeks.” It would make a huge difference as you will no longer need to download another application for these simple functions.
The company has also introduced a QR code, which you can share from either Android or desktop Chrome.
Google Chrome will be delivering these upgrades slowly, so it’ll take some time before you can use them.
