Google has shared different data that reflect the recent improvement applied to Chrome: the Android browser reduced memory usage, increased stability, and noticeably decreased boot, always according to Google. The improvements were introduced with the version M89 of Google Chrome.

Talking about Google Chrome usually brings two facts to mind: that is number one in use and that its resource consumption is usually high. Google is aware of the devouring desire for its app, not in vain it has been optimizing it with each version. First with the Chromium base; then adding the optimizations to the Canary, Dev and stable versions. But are the optimizations really noticeable? Google has communicated its most recent changes to the Chrome code.


Chrome on Android is faster at starting and loading pages

Few Chrome apps update as much as Chrome. In fact, trial versions receive almost daily updates, all to advance small improvements and novelties in order to make them stable. With this, poor browser optimization has been reduced, especially on mobile phones.

As Google has explained the Chromium page, Open Source version of the browser that serves as the basis for Chrome and other applications that use its code, the browser for Android took a big leap thanks to various code changes:

  • 13% faster start-up. Chrome does not load the saved tabs in full, but rather rescues a lighter version (‘Freeze-Dried Tabs’) while the full websites are downloaded in the background. Said lightweight version is equally functional.
  • 2% faster loading pages.
  • 5% reduction in memory consumption.
  • 7.5% improvement at startup. This applies to the application in general, not just when Chrome had tabs loaded before closing.
  • 64-bit Chrome for mobiles with Android 10 and more than 8 GB of RAM memory has seen an 8.5% improvement in page loading with 28% greater scrolling fluidity and lower keystroke latency.

Google made most of the improvements by downloading Chrome from ‘bundles’ or divided APKs for various phone versions and models. Thanks to this optimization the browser is more adapted to the hardware requirements; thereby resulting in the improvement of the experience.

All data offered by Google has been captured by the company regarding Chrome versions prior to M89. This version is now available on a stable basis.
