The Chrome browser, entirely built by Google, is maybe one of the fastest, if not the fastest web browser as of today, available on many mobile and desktop platforms. With that said, this year Google is working even harder to improve the user experience that their product offers, cut down on waiting times, and a lot more.
Faster and smoother operations
The launch of PWAs (progressive web apps) was another step forward to delivering a native app-like experience inside a browser. Its main target was mobile devices, but these days more work is being done to bring PWAs to desktop operating systems like Windows, Mac OS, and Linux as well.
The current navigation system from one web page to another one is not as instantaneous as we would certainly like. Users often have to stare at a white screen until a page finally decides to load. To combat this, the Chrome team had started designing a new API, which will allow developers to adjust and optimize every aspect of their website, so it performs as good as possible on all kinds of devices, including mobile phones.
Frameworks play a huge role in performance, and to achieve further enhancements Google is launching a fund with an initial amount of $200,000 to support the development of performance-related features in third-party frameworks. What this means to us is that we may see many fresh ideas from a lot of talented and experienced people around the world merged to Chrome.
Chrome's future is looking to be on the bright side. Let us know what are your gripes using on your Androids.
